I''m 32 this year. What are the risks of having a baby with Down''s?

The risk of having a Down''s baby is directly related to your age. It is not related to how many children you have had, whether you have a new partner, your diet or drugs that you might have had at or around conception. If you deliver your baby at 32, the risk of having a baby with Down''s is roughly 1 in 500. At 38, the risk has jumped to 1 in 150, and at 43 it is 1 in 50.
How likely is it that my baby will have Down''s syndrome?

The risk of having a baby with Down''s syndrome is related to your age, although parents of any age can have a Down''s child. It is not related to how many children you have had, whether you have a new partner, or to drugs that you might have taken at or around the time of conception.
