NURSING DOWN SYNDROME: A SHORT GUIDE TO BREASTFEEDING YOUR BABY

Our brochure is now available! This brochure, written by Jill Geschwint Rabin, an IBCLC and pediatric speech pathologist, and Ella Gray Cullen, Founder and Executive Director of Julia's Way and nursing mother of a child with Down syndrome, with input from Kimberly Barbas from Boston Children's Hospital and Dr. Davidson from the Down Syndrome Program at Boston Children's Hospital, is designed to support mothers and medical professionals understand and overcome the challenges that babies sometimes face when attempting to breastfeed.

“We are so excited that Julia’s Way has developed this fresh, informative guide to breastfeeding a baby with Down syndrome. It is an invaluable resource for welcome packages for both new and expectant families as well as the medical community at large. For moms who choose to breastfeed their baby, it provides much-needed support and hope. This guide is a gold standard resource and should be shared far and wide!”
— Sarah Cullen, Family Support Director for the Massachusetts Down Syndrome Congress

These are perfect for inclusion in New Parent Packets and distribution by genetics counselors, NICUs, labor and delivery floors, and Down syndrome clinics.

These brochures  are a prelude to the book we are writing, due out in mid-2018, and we know they will help so many moms feel supported and encouraged to breastfeed their babies. They're chock-full of helpful information!
