Supporting Each Other On World Down Syndrome Day

Supporting Each Other On World Down Syndrome Day

When Coco Moon mom Sheryl gave birth to her son, Boogie, she found that some of her friends and family weren’t sure what to say. Boogie is one of 6,000 babies in the US born every year with Down Syndrome, and rather than hearing “Congratulations! and “Welcome to the world!”, Sheryl heard messages of sympathy and regret.  

Today on World Down Syndrome Day, we want to celebrate families who have children with Down Syndrome by sharing Sheryl’s experience and tips for making new parents feel welcomed and supported.

Love At Christmas...Behind

Love At Christmas...Behind "Aloha Kalikimaka"

November 15, 2019 0 Comments

“Christmas is a time for families to gather in love and hope, so I wanted this lei to embody that feeling of aloha that we share here in Hawaiʻi,” she explained. To bring her vision to life, Patricia gathered flowers and ferns to haku (weave) a lei of her own which became the inspiration for the lei depicted on the quilt.

"Breastfeeding can feel natural, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy. Labor is natural and we accept that it can be work. New mamas can be kind to themselves by giving themselves permission to ask for help early and often from their hui, community resources and specialists, like International Board Certified Lactation Consultants, if needed.
