- Co-opted Trustee
Hi I’m Emily and I have 2 sons, Eden who was born in 2012 and Alex, born in 2015.
Alex has Down’s syndrome and we received the diagnosis about 12 hours after he was born. I was shocked and scared when we first heard but Alex has brought so much joy into our lives that we wouldn’t have it any other way.
We have been wonderfully supported by DSL from Alex’s birth and I’m really excited to have the opportunity to contribute to the amazing work they do.
Alex has been breastfed since birth and I’m passionate about supporting mums within our community to feed their babies. I am currently training to be a breastfeeding counsellor and hope this experience can help me to provide support.
