There Is A Possibility. The statistical risk depends on the type of chromosome translocation.

Either parent with a 21/21 translocation can only have children with Down syndrome.

One healthy and one parent with a 14/21 translocation has 50/50 odds of a child with Down syndrome. After the first pregnancy, this couple has an 8% to 10% risk of Down syndrome with every further child. Statistically.

Anyone with a genetically transmissible disease or condition should seek genetic counseling as part of their overall family planning.

There is a High possibility of your child have this disease, but it all depends on the sex cells that get copied to the baby.Well, it's not a disease, it's a genetic anomoly that causes various levels of physical and intellectual disability plus can also cause serious health issues in some individuals due to organ development.Most authorities state that males with Down Sydndrome are sterile, the exception is some males with a rare form of DS, called Mosaic, where only certain cells have an extra chromosone. If the reproductive organs are not effected then theoretically that individual should be fertile. Females with Down Sydnrome have a 33% chance of having a healthy baby without any major disabilities. It would be unlikely that a male and female with DS would ever parent a healthy baby.
