Podcast Episode 005: A Down syndrome Diagnosis and Friends and Family Response
When a parent shares the news that a baby is diagnosed with Down syndrome, everyone has some kind of reaction. So what should you say if this news is shared? Congratulations? I'm sorry? Something else?
In this episode we share some reactions from our friends and family. Some people had really impactful reactions, and others', though well intended, were rather tone deaf. Then we had some very unique reactions, and we share these in the episode. So listen in and enjoy our conversation about reactions to our sharing Genevieve's Down syndrome diagnosis.
During the episode we reference "Welcome to Holland" you can find it here: https://www.ndss.org/lifespan/a-parents-perspective/
