This is a great blog post from an experienced Mum about the Top 15 things a new parent should know, which summarises all she has learned over 16 years. It’s a great list to of things to consider.
Other great resources for further learning:
Glenn Doman was a champion for helping children with brain injuries and we were lucky enough to attend two of the IAHP lectures in Melbourne. Some of the books he has written are a great place to start when learning about brain development.
Naturopath Gabi Giacomin wrote a great series of posts on Health & Down syndrome on Mummalove in 2015. You can read the posts here:
* Optimum Diet
* Complementary & Alternative Medicine

There are many great resources and forums that enable like-minded parents to discuss a holistic approach to raising their children. Please let me know if you’d like to be added to any forums that I’m part of. If you have any specific questions I can help with, please email me.
