INFORMATION FOR
PARENTS FINDING OUT PRENATALLY THAT
YOUR SON WOULD BE BORN WITH AN EXTRA X


WHAT IS THIS SECTION FOR:

This section is for parents who found out via amniocentesis or some other way that their son will be born with an extra X chromosome or a similar variant.

I can only imagine what you go through and feel when you find out this news during your pregnancy.  It is hard enough finding out at age 25, much less in your situation.  Regardless, I feel you are very lucky to find out this news now because you have the diagnosis and you can learn about the condition and do everything possible to help your son succeed.  You have the opportunity to meet others and to connect to those that have dealt directly with this situation.  Some of those parents who have been in this situation, are listed below with their e-mail address and other information.  Feel free to contact them.

It is important for us to be able to seek validation from others who have been there before.  This section is dedicated to those just finding out prenatally.

If you would like your information added to this section or if you have any questions for me, please e-mail Stefan.
