Last month, one mom’s story inspired us to launch a special Mother’s Day campaign. She described feeling “desperate and isolated” after learning that her baby boy would have Down syndrome, and Down Syndrome Pregnancy was the lifeline that gave her hope during that time. She told us that she wished every genetic counselor could have a copy of our book to share with other pregnant moms expecting a baby with Down syndrome.
This Mother’s Day, we’re determined to make her wish come true.
During the month of May, all donations to Down Syndrome Pregnancy will go toward providing copies of Diagnosis to Delivery: A Pregnant Mother’s Guide to Down Syndrome to prenatal genetic counselors.
Reaching $10,000 by the end of the month will cover all prenatal genetic counselors nationwide. The incredible news is one generous donor has already kicked off the campaign with a $5000 contribution; we are already halfway to our goal!
Please make a donation now to help us raise the additional $5,000 to make sure all expectant moms have the resources they need.

This month we’ll also be featuring the stories of moms who have used Down Syndrome Pregnancy and the BabyCenter Board over the years, and we’ll be including photos of our Down Syndrome Pregnancy “graduates.” If you’d like to be featured, please email your photo and story to email@example.com.Tags: Mother's Day, Mother's Day 2013
