Services for expectant and new parents
When a baby with Down syndrome is born, parents need accurate and current information about Down syndrome. The Down Syndrome Federation provides support and information to new parents and expecting parents.
Here are some of the services that our state and territory associations offer parents and families.

Our national 1300 number (1300 881 935) will connect you to your local state or territory Down syndrome support organisation. The staff can help you find information, answer your questions and to arrange for you to meet another parent of a child with Down syndrome.
