What complications could a baby with trisomy 16 experience?

This is complicated.: It's complicated because full trisomy 16 is 99.9% fatal before birth. Newborns with partial trisomy 16 may live - most have multiple birth defects and serious developmental problems. The exact types of birth defects are different depending on what parts of chromosome 16 are duplicated. Your clinical geneticist or genetic counselor can help.
