Today, 21st March is World Down Syndrome Day. This year marks the 9th anniversary.
On this day, people with Down syndrome, family, friends and carers throughout the world, organize and participate in activities and events to raise public awareness and create a single global voice for advocating for the rights, inclusion and well being of people with Down syndrome
The date for WDSD, the 21st day of the 3rd month, was selected to signify the uniqueness of the triplication (trisomy) of the 21st chromosome which causes Down syndrome.
We have not been able to find any events/activities locally but would love to hear from you if you organised something to mark World Down Syndrome Day.

We came across this video and wanted to share it with you all. I think ‘Future Mom’ will feel very reassured!
