During a pregnancy ultrasound, doctors may look for certain signs of Down syndrome.  

These include abnormal development of the baby’s skull and facial features, as well as poor muscle tone. 

The presence of these features does not necessarily mean that the baby has Down syndrome, but they may be indicative of the condition. 

In addition to looking for physical abnormalities, doctors may also 

test for Down syndrome by looking at the baby’s chromosomes. 

This can be done through a procedure called amniocentesis, which involves taking a sample of the fluid surrounding the baby. 

If the baby has an extra copy of chromosome 21, this is a strong indication of Down syndrome. 

There are a few things you can do to lower your risk of having a baby with Down Syndrome.
