Relinquishment for adoption of babies with Down's Syndrome: announcement of the diagnosis to parents and institutional practices of maternity staff

Abstract : This article is a synthesis of research findings based on a study conducted in France between 1990 and 1996. The project aimed to establish a clearer understanding of why Down's Syndrome infants were given up for adoption, to evaluate the extent of the phenomenon and its evolution over the long term. It also analysed the impact of the diagnosis on the parental decision whether to keep the baby or not and highlighted the determining factors in babies being given up for adoption.
