Having a baby should be one of the most joyous times in your life. Whether you find out pre-natal, at delivery, or post-natal, having your baby diagnosed with Down syndrome can be very scary! The fear of the unknown can often over-shadow the joy of becoming a parent to this new life. Our goal is to provide comfort, support and resources to new parents by welcoming them to the Down syndrome community in a positive way and telling them all the AMAZING things about Down syndrome.
We welcome new families with a gift basket, especially chosen for babies with Down syndrome, to celebrate their new baby! Each New Baby Luv Basket includes information about local and national resources that can help a new family transition more easily and more positively into life with Down syndrome. We also include books about Down syndrome and an assortment of baby items and gifts. All of our volunteers that deliver the baskets are all parents of children with Down syndrome so they can immediately relate to the new parents. The experience, strength, and hope that our volunteers share with families always brings a new sense of peace and happiness.
We can deliver baskets to any hospital, pediatrician, public health nurse or midwife in the greater Houston Metro area.
Please contact us by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you know of a new baby that we can help welcome or would like to donate to the baskets.
