If you have recently learned that your baby has Down syndrome, if you need answers, support or just need to talk to someone who's been through this, please contact our First Call team at 443-300-6972 or email@example.com. All correspondences are confidential.
Congratulations on your new baby! Right now there may be a lot of emphasis on how your baby may be different and possible medical issues he or she may face but the most important thing to remember is that your baby is a baby first. You will begin to learn that children with Down syndrome are more alike than different from other children.
Learning that your baby has Down syndrome is an overwhelming experience for most parents. You may feel confused, frightened, angry, saddened, or isolated. Please know that your feelings are completely normal! We have information and connections available that can help you make important decisions for your family.
