Mum Pens Honest 'Review' After Having Baby With Down's Syndrome

A mum has written a heartwarmingly honest review on conceiving a child with Down's syndrome.

Jessica Egan was overjoyed when she found out she was pregnant, after years of trying, but was left devastated when her unborn daughter tested positive for the condition.

Throughout the pregnancy, she became increasingly concerned her daughter would not be accepted by the world.


But, after reaching out to her local Down's syndrome foundation, and educating herself on the diagnosis, Jessica's attitude towards her daughter's diagnosis

Wanting to share what she'd learned with other parents, Jessica took to Facebook to share her 'review' on her baby girl in a now-viral post.

"When I placed my order I said, 'Regular amount of chromosomes, please!' That's what everyone else got and what I wanted too," she wrote.

"They called me shortly after my order was in production and said: 'Great news, we went ahead and upgraded you to extra chromosomes for free! You'll receive the extra chromosomes with your completed order in 9 months.'


"What?! I was mad! All the other orders I had seen displayed via perfect Instagram posts did NOT have extra chromosomes. Well, I decided that receiving my order with extra chromosomes was better than not receiving an order at all, so I settled in to wait for this surprise upgrade to arrive."

"I have now had my order for two months and am writing this review to let others know the upgrade to extra chromosomes is amazing!! If offered, definitely take it!

"I posted some photos below of the finished product and you can see the extra chromosome is so worth it - it is extra cute, extra special, and extra-ordinary! So much extra joy. Would purchase again for sure."

Although Jessica admitted the heartwarming post was only meant to seen by her family and friends, the post has since been liked by nearly 350,000 people, with many praising her openness and honesty.
