New Parent Information Pack

These resources are designed specifically for parents and families with a new baby who has been diagnosed with Down syndrome.

“What will life be like for our family?”

“What can we do to help our baby reach his or her full potential?”

Our booklets will help you understand what Down syndrome is and what it might be like to have a child with Down syndrome.

We’ve also included information about the support that is available, and about navigating family life and the health system in the early days and weeks.
