Nebraska Down Syndrome Diagnosis Information and Support Act.
In 2016 the Nebraska State legislature passed a law requiring Doctors to provide accurate, non biased information to families who receive a new diagnosis of Down syndrome. A web page was created on the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services website that medical professionals can send families to, in order to get current information and fulfill their requirements under the law. We were proud to work on this project, help put together the information for the web page, and monitor it to ensure the information remains current.
"Diagnosis to Delivery"book is specifically written for expectant mothers who are preparing for the birth of a baby with Down syndrome. It will answer your pregnancy and birth questions, validate your emotions, provide coping advice, and give you hope for the future.
