In this section you can find out about the experience of antenatal screening (for various conditions) by seeing and hearing people share their personal stories on film. Our researchers travelled all around the UK to talk to 37 women and 8 couples in their own homes. Find out what people said about issues such as understanding results, information for making decisions, deciding whether to have further tests, continuing or ending a pregnancy. We hope you find the information helpful and reassuring.
