Congratulations on the birth of your new baby! As parents of children with Down syndrome, we feel we have experienced many of the feelings you may have at this time
At the birth of our children, most of us found it very rewarding to speak to other parents of children born with Down syndrome as soon as possible. If you would like to speak to another parent, please feel free to call any of the board members listed on our contact page.
We can say that your anxiety will lessen as you begin to adjust and understand your new baby. In its place, will be a strong love, accompanied by a feeling of challenge and pride that will grow as your little one grows.
We also offer our support through our new parent packs, membership meetings, events, and monthly newsletters. New parents of Baton Rouge and surrounding parishes who did not receive this packet containing support and resource information from their delivery hospital may contact us. If you are interested in receiving our membership newsletters, please feel free to contact any of the board members to place your name on our e-mail and mailing list.
Once again, congratulations on the birth of your beautiful new baby!
