Emma Bail and Rebekah Doherty – Downs Syndrome Awareness

A campaign to give families more balanced information on the outcome of having a child with Downs Syndrome, is circulating booklets to hospitals and clinics across the region. In a BBC documentary last night, actress Sally Phillips told her personal story of her experience bringing up her son Ollie, who has the condition. Now the organisation Lose the Label are taking the awareness campaign a step further with a booklet for parents and professionals. With me now is parent Emma Bail who appeared on that programme and Rebekah Doherty who’s also a parent and Project Lead.
