We are currently working on a project to inspire, encourage, and prepare mothers of babies with Down syndrome who would like to breastfeed. The project has three basic parts: an eye-catching photoshoot to get people to take notice; an inspirational video for those new and expectant moms to feel empowered to BF if they want to (secondary audience is medical professionals); and a book/website of exhaustive resources.
