Baskets of Love - Down syndrome

Having a baby should be one of the happiest times in your life. Having your baby diagnosed with Down syndrome can be scary, and often over-shadows the joy of becoming a parent to this new life. This is especially the case when parents don't know the diagnosis before their baby is born. Our goal is to provide comfort, support and resources to new parents by welcoming them to the Down syndrome community in a positive way.

We want to welcome new families with a gift basket, especially chosen for babies with Down syndrome, and celebrate their new baby! Baskets of Love will be given to hospitals in the Greater Vancouver, BC area which will then be given to a new family of a baby with Down syndrome.

Each gift basket will include brochures and information about local and national resources that can help the new family transition more easily and more positively into life with Down syndrome. We will also include books about Down syndrome (inspirational and educational),  sensory toys specially chosen to be helpful for babies with Down syndrome, and an assortment of other baby items and gifts.  

Thank you for your support!
