The vast majority of babies with Down’s syndrome are born to women under the age of 35. The average age of women giving birth to a baby with Down’s syndrome is 28 in the UK. Meet Beth, who fell pregnant at 17 and is now proud mum to Erin Mae.
Hi all, I’m here to tell you all about my beautiful little girl, Erin Mae. Erin is 16 months old now and is doing really well, all things considered! I unexpectedly fell pregnant at 17 years of age and received the diagnosis of Erin having Down syndrome at 33 weeks pregnant; I had just turned 18. I’m now 19 years old and I’m a single parent.
