DSDN believes that a strong support system can have a positive impact on parents raising their child- so that is why developed the first rockin' mom™ group in February of 2013. We have a deep desire to connect and support parents receiving a new Down syndrome diagnosis. Read more about our group guidelines here. We pride ourselves on offering a layer of support to parents which is a safe, respectful space to share, vent, celebrate and discuss. All of our groups are monitored and moderated to ensure for a positive experience for our group members. Thank you for joining us in our mission!
We offer several styles of support groups:
Small, private birth club groups where a rockin' mom™ can connect with other moms with children born around the same time as their child. These are focused on moms who have children under 1 year old.
Larger, closed groups where parents can connect with other parents born in the same year. Moms and dads of children of any age can join these groups.
How to Join:
Are you pregnant?
Send an email to email@example.com to be added to the private groups. We know that discretion can be important in those beginning days of processing a new diagnosis, so we work extra hard to create a private, secure space for families with a new diagnosis. These groups do not come up in a search and it does not show that you are a member of the group on your Facebook account or page. All posts are private.
Do you have a child under 1?
For dads: Join the dad group here
