4/31 Prenatal Diagnosis Support

Hooray!  There is a new website created specifically for parents who have received a prenatal diagnosis of Down syndrome and plan to proceed with the pregnancy.   It looks great!  There is a free e-book on the site: From Diagnosis to Delivery: A Pregnant Mother's Guide to Down Syndrome.

Since we did not have a prenatal diagnosis, I can only imagine how difficult it is to process all the overwhelming feelings and information of an unexpected prenatal diagnosis.  I know how hard it was for us, even when we could see how beautiful our daughter was with our own eyes.  I am so glad that there is a website with accurate and supportive information for these yet-to-be parents.

If you'd like to help with this outreach, you can make a tax-deductible donation on the site:

I think this is such a valuable resource!!! We knew prenatally but we were very lucky to have a strong support in our doctor, geneticist, family and friends. To have this added bonus would have been wonderful, too, as Terry and I did have to process all the feelings as if we were surprised at birth. Great link, Beth!
