Parents of children with Down's Syndrome need more information says mum

BBC Radio Cumbria

A Cumbrian mother is calling for more positive information to be given about Down's Syndrome during pregnancy.

Cristina Bowman from Carlisle says she received a "shocking" lack of support following the birth of her son Max, two.

Down's Syndrome is usually caused by an extra chromosome in a child's cells.

Cristina says she was helped by Cumbria Down's Syndrome Support Group: "I know how difficult it can be, how scary, when you've just had a new baby.

"If you need somebody to talk to pick up the phone, there's somebody there to talk to.

"Whatever you're feeling, it's not silly. It's very real but it's going to be OK."
