Pregnant after abortion

I am pregnant after an abortion in the fifth month, my unborn baby was diagnosed with Down's syndrome, and we had to medically abort the baby at fifth month. I got pregnant after 4 months, will the case repeat again, am very concerned. Emotionally i still have not come to terms with unfortunate loss of first baby. Iam scared and worried.

I am so sorry. Many hospitals have genetic counselors. If yours does not, perhaps your care provider can refer you. A genetic counselor should be able to tell you how likely it is that you would conceive another baby with Downs syndrome. A counselor might also be able to refer you to someone who can help you deal with your very understandable fears and distress.
