New Parents

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintEmail

Welcome and congratulations on the birth of your new baby. We hope we can help you and your family to celebrate and welcome your son or daughter.

The birth of a baby is an exciting and happy time for the whole family. When the diagnosis of Down syndrome is made it can be a great shock. We understand that your life is no longer following the road you expected. You are not alone, the Louth/Meath Branch of Down Syndrome Ireland is a collection of parents of children with Down syndrome who have come together to support each other and provide much needed services and advice.

In the Branch we have two volunteers, who are parents of children with Down syndrome who are available to offer support and information to new parents.

New parents living in:

County Louth/Meath should contact Sirpa Makinen on  086 8614970

County Louth/Meath should contact Eleanor Cosgrove on 087 667 1393
