If you are looking for information about Down syndrome as part of family life, you have come to the right place. Here parents give their honest and open response to finding out their baby has Down syndrome.
If you would like to know about any element of our lives please just ask – whether you’ve been told baby may require heart surgery, are concerned about the impact of having a little one with Down syndrome may have on the rest of your family, what financial benefits you may be entitled to or what adulthood may look like, we can answer your questions, signpost you to information or local support, share our own experiences and hopefully enlighten and reassure you.
Some new and expectant parents struggle with discovering baby has Down syndrome, so if you are feeling like this, please know that you are not alone, we are here for you. We hope you and your extended family and friends will find this website inspirational and interesting and that you will get an inkling of how much fun life will be.
We can put you in touch with local support groups and online we have closed Facebook pages exclusively for expectant parents, new parents and also one for Grandparents. You do not have to do this alone!
