Why we Step Up for Down Syndrome: New & Expectant Parents

We Step Up for DSAMn because we know firsthand the power of connection and support provided to new and expectant parents in the days, months, and first years following a Down syndrome diagnosis. DSAMn’s New Family Programs support parents through the first few years of their child's life. Our programs include our Parents First Call Program, Birth to Two parent groups, New Parent and First Birthday celebrations, and more. Our new parent programming connects new parents with information, resources and connections to other local families who are walking a similar path.

Ryker’s parents, Kyle and Melissa, recently shared the impact of DSAMn’s New Family Programs:

“We really wanted to thank you and DSAMn. The organization has done so much for us as a new family and everyone has made us feel so welcomed. We have enjoyed the zoom calls, picnics, the annual conference, the Step Up Walk, First Birthday Bash, and so much more. We have had the opportunity to meet so many great families and hear some of their stories.”
