We went for weeks unsure if our baby had Down Syndrome after abnormal u/s findings and my midwives were 100% committed to continuing to provide my care and deliver me, regardless. Instead of delivering at the birth center, it would be a planned hospital delivery, but that was the only difference. So, I guess it depends on the provider...
