This Mother Takes Stunning Photos of Her Daughter with Down Syndrome to Break Stereotypes

The Harmful Norms


Sian Davey

After doing her research, Davey discovered that 92% of Down syndrome babies in the UK are terminated at the pre-natal screening stage (figures from 2015). Often, these babies are marginalized. Some were even institutionalized with limited medical care before the introduction of screening. Davey herself struggled to come to terms with the fact her own daughter had been diagnosed.

Davey indeed did not expect to have a child like Alice and found it difficult to establish a true bond with her. “Alice did not feel like my other children and part of my response was to pull away from her,” she vulnerably admitted. Davey had extreme anxiety and was hurt about raising a child with Down syndrome, but eventually saw that things had to change.
