Looking After Yourselves
Feeding Your Baby
Your Baby's Development
You will never forget the moment you
find out your baby has Down syndrome.
Our families say the moment remains crystal clear in their memories.
They are able to relive it even twenty years later as though
it happened yesterday.
People react in many different ways.
You may feel overwhelming sadness, you may feel too numb to
react much at all.
Do not assume your partner is experiencing
this the same way as you.
It is OK to react in whichever way
Your partners way of coping is
You are not alone, other people have
felt this way before you.
In time most people adjust to the news.
Their baby becomes a well-loved member of their families and
Whanau, just part of their everyday lives.
