  • Down syndrome comes when a mom is deficient in vitamin A. I get tired of hearing what this deficiency does to the baby and never why it happened. Re:Book titled Nutrition and Physically degeneration : Dr. Weston A. Price. Any MD with a degree in natural medicine would have studied nutrition as well as the diseases of the body and would probably be better equip t to prevent this type of deformity. I am being kind because knowing gives power.

  • Avoid using the term ‘normal’ this can be offensive, instead use ‘typical’

  • I really loved this video! I too post videos in support of our Down Syndrome toddler only to spread awareness, cause when we discovered we were blessed with a trisomy21 child we were clueless on expectations and who or where to turn to for guidance and support. I subscribed to your channel to demonstrate support. Great Video!
