Visiting Parents Program

Visiting Parents Program -  When a new family contacts the office and requests a visit, our Visiting Parents Coordinator contacts that family directly to make arrangements.  Visiting parents understand the many emotions that new parents may be experiencing.  They may bring their child with Down syndrome along for the visit if the new parents would like to meet him or her.  Visiting parents explain how being a member of MDSS has helped them, and encourages the new family to come out to the next Baby Love gathering to meet other new parents.  Please contact: susancearns@shaw.ca.
