If a doctor hasn't told her yet for sure that he has down's syndrome, I don't think any of you should be telling her that, as that is not your place, as none of you are medically certified to do so. Either way , he's precious. Let the doctors do their job, and if she has any concerns she can talk to them about it.

I think this situation is beyond you...she really needs counseling and I hope she gets it.

If they haven't told her for sure that it's DS, maybe she's holding on to thinking it isn't. I wouldn't tell her it is unless the doctor says it is. You're not a doctor, KWIM? Just be there for her, support her. That's all you really can do.

Aww he is absolutely precious. Some people have a really hard time accepting that their child has down syndrome,she may need to see a therapist or join a group of some kind

We are, she just suffer from depression, and we just wanna take her easy on her, but she ask me to search for any kind of advice or help, from people who had babies with DS because she doesnt know how to manage it.

You didn't say in your OP that the doctor told her her son has down syndrome. You said he shows signs or characteristics that he may have it. Either way, be supportive and not adamant that she accepts whatever is to come, she will on her own time, I mean she just gave birth, unexpected things can be hard to swallow and accept.

Yeah, it sounded to me like they hadn't told her for sure yet. Lol, no, I've never been in the situation. But I don't think that rules out the ability to offer some advice. :?



Like someone else stated, she may need some counseling for it. And like I stated, just be there for her. Let her know that it's okay, and special needs or not, she's going to be a great mom and the baby will be loved and supported as well. She may need a little time, as well. She just gave birth and I can't imagine how hard that would be to hear.

Just fixed it. I know unexpected things can happen because it happened to me when i gave birth DS. But nothing like this
