We sometimes have expectant parents awaiting the birth of twins, and one or both babies have Down syndrome. If you have twins, will you help our expectant parents? How was your birth plan different? Did the logistics of a twin birth cause extra complications? Are there any differences in parenting that you see? In what ways is it more difficult? In what ways is it beneficial? If you have a blog or website that pertains to twins and Down syndrome, please share.
We will start off suggested resources by mentioning Jen Graf Groneberg’s Roadmap to Holland. Jen gave birth to twin boys, one with Down syndrome, and wrote of her early experiences.
Another resource is a blog by Eric Waksmunski, dad to twin boys with Down syndrome.
Another guest post by Vicki Vila on Amy Julia Becker’s “Thin Places” blog gives a unique and insightful perspective about fraternal twins where one has Down syndrome and the other does not. Vicki Vila’s blog can be found at www.modernmessy.wordpress.com.
Let’s hear some more resources, and any personal experience.Tags: down syndrome, down syndrome pregnancy, down syndrome siblings, Down syndrome twins, downsyndromepregnancy.org, Jennifer Graf Groneberg
