Down Syndrome Centre Cork

Season 2, Ep. 13
When you are told that your new born baby has Down syndrome it is quite natural to experience a number of emotions at any given time, particularly during the first few weeks and months. For some parents it is one of shock as they have had no advance warning, for some it is disappointment that they were not handed the baby they anticipated and for others it’s a worry of what lies ahead. All these emotions are very common, however in time, parents come to realise that they have a tiny baby that requires the same love and attention as any other baby who has his/her own special little personality that will develop and inspire you over the years.Once parents have had time to enjoy their new baby and are ready to look for a little more support or meet other mums and dads for a coffee and to share experiences, then The Down Syndrome Centre Cork is there to help you.The Down Syndrome Centre on Forge Hill in Cork City was established in 2014 by a group of parents who could not find support or services for their children. Eight years later the centre provides vital intervention services to young children with Down syndrome and their families.The centre has a wonderful home-from-home atmosphere where families feel relaxed, and the children can thrive. It is so important to have a welcoming community where families can share their experiences and support each other.Show your support and follow @downsyndromecentrecork on Instagram and Facebook and if you can, get involved with their fundraising.#downsyndrome #downsyndromeawareness
