Today’s episode is a little different. October is Down syndrome awareness month and I really wanted to celebrate that by sharing a story of Down syndrome here on the podcast. Today I’m chatting with Lauren Molloy, all about her journey with her adorable daughter, Autumn. When Lauren was 10 weeks pregnant, she learned she was having a baby girl. She also learned that her baby had Down syndrome. Lauren talks all about processing that diagnosis throughout her pregnancy and how she prepared for her baby by finding resources and connecting with the Down syndrome community. Autumn was also born with a heart defect that required surgery and Lauren details their journey with her surgery and recovery. Autumn just recently celebrated her first birthday so it felt like a very appropriate time for Lauren to share their story! I am thrilled to have Lauren on the show today and it’s amazing how much I can relate to their journey despite our children having a very different diagnosis. Special needs really connect us. We had a great time chatting and I hope you enjoy listening!
