Because DS is a chromosomal issue, there is nothing to treat or prevent it from happening in the future. How far along where you? They can do tests will the baby is in utero which will tell if there's any problems so you know before you give birth.

There is no way to prevent down syndrome.   The dr can do an amnio while pregnant to determine if your baby has it.

Unfortunately, there is no treatment for it since it is a chromosomal abnormailty. If you do plan to get pregnant again have genetic testing done to determine if your next baby has it. Although, when my son was suspected of having Trisomy 18 I was told by the genetic doctor that the chances of giving birth to a baby with a chromosomal abnormality increases with each pregnancy.
