A few months ago my friend Rebecca called me and said "I have an idea." She wanted to create a podcast about Down syndrome. We decided to publish the first episode on October 21st, for Down Syndrome Awareness Month.
For our first episode I interviewed our friend Elizabeth Jeub on her project "Know Us", a photo and story essay booklet for new parents in the Front Range Area. We talked a lot about the inspiration for her project, our experiences receiving a Down syndrome diagnosis, and what we wished had been done differently.
Today we published our second podcast, an interview with Rebecca as she talks about preparing to teach her first birthing preparation class specifically for parents who have received a diagnosis.
Please have a listen and share your feedback with us here or on t21action.weebly.com.
Since becoming a mom to a little boy with Trisomy 21 I have written a lot about Down syndrome and disabilities. I am a storyteller, wife and mom to a teen and a toddler. Life is busy!
