National Center for Prenatal and Postnatal Down Syndrome Resources

National Center for Prenatal and Postnatal Down Syndrome Resources

The National Center for Prenatal and Postnatal Down Syndrome Resources, administered through HDI was created to insure that all parents and prospective parents receive accurate, balanced, and scientifically up-to-date information at the point of a prenatal or postnatal Down syndrome diagnosis.

The National Center includes the Lettercase materials (including “Understanding a Down Syndrome Diagnosis“), Brighter Tomorrows and Down Syndrome Pregnancy.Org,, which provides support to women who are preparing for the birth of a child with Down syndrome. These materials are also used by the KY Cabinet for Health and Family Services in administering the KY Down Syndrome Information Act, requiring health practitioners to provide patients with accurate and balanced information about Down syndrome immediately upon a prenatal or postnatal diagnosis.
