SOFT Development Day

We would like to invite all our wonderful volunteers to a development session on Saturday 16 May at the Hilton Northampton. Help us shape the future of SOFT so we can better support families. We'll start about 3pm and have dinner around 7.30pm (family members welcome). Email Kirsty for more information and to reserve your hotel room (free of charge for volunteers and their families).

Prenatal Screening

From April 2015 women in England will be offered first trimester screening for Edwards' syndrome and Patau's syndrome (T18/T13). These conditions are already screened for in England in the second trimester. The change follows updated guidance for the NHS Fetal Anomaly Screening Programme; ensuring women continue to receive early, high quality information about their pregnancy. Changes will be reflected in the leaflet that parents receive - Screening Tests for You and Your Baby - and in guidance given to health professionals. For more info visit FASP
