I've tried a couple of translation sites on the web but its a little confusing.

Can anyone tell me what the french term is for Downs Syndrome?? I've got my first scan at 9.00am tomorrow and want to know if they will be testing it then or is it a blood test. (live in paris btw)

Many thanks

Trisomie 21, blossom2. Babies with a chromosome disorder such as Down's, Patau's or Edwards', are known in French as Bebes trisomiques.
Here is a French language website from which I got this info, hope it helps

Ca c'est passe comment, Blossom? Bien, j'espere.
JanH, I am hoping there is not a specific reason for you to be familiar with that vocab?

Marina, don't worry, I just went googling as usual and found it on the same site as you!

Hope your scan went well, blossom, and you got a good look at your little bean!
