Support the Down Syndrome Pregnancy Gift Fund

The Down Syndrome Pregnancy program at the University of Kentucky offers a lifeline of support to new and expectant parents preparing for the birth of a baby with Down Syndrome or welcoming a newborn. We support thousands of parents each year, as well as their friends and family adjusting to a new diagnosis, by providing them with valuable resources so that they never feel alone. We offer free articles, books, and support during what can be a very vulnerable time for families.

"When I got the news that my baby girl had Down Syndrome, my world turned upside down. Downsyndromepregnancy.org launched within weeks of getting Ellie's diagnosis. I was able to share the website and book with family members and close friends; connect with other women; learn more about Down syndrome; and find hope from experienced parents who talked me through both of my daughter's major surgeries. I cannot fathom how difficult my pregnancy would have been without the voices of other parents providing hope."Megan Landmeier (www.mystubbornmiss.com)

Please join us in making these free resources available to even more families and medical providers, translating these resources to more languages, and supporting families during a critical time.
