My midwife just called with our IPS results.

For my age, my risk of Down’s is 1 in 769. The point where they start to get worried is 1 in 200.

My result came back at 1 in 6620, which is the equivalent risk for someone who is less than fifteen years old.

And my risk for spina bifida came back at 1 in 54,600.

Even though the great nuchal fold measurement gave me a lot of reassurance, this was just wonderful, wonderful news to receive.
