Our expert says:
Your options really depend on what you want. It sounds from what you have written that you have had a good explanation and that you have understood it. The one option is to accept that there is a risk of mental retardation and that you will accept that. Remember that it is not definite. 20% of babies with this condition will be okay. The other option is the termination of pregnancy and it has been explained to you how and when this will be done because of the twin pregnancy.There is no treatment that can be done in utero. It is, however, entirely your decision whether you are prepared to accept the risk of a handicapped baby, or whether you would want to terminate the pregnancy.
