Claire Farrington is a published blogger and Down’s Syndrome advocate.
Two years ago, she was just an expectant mum with no knowledge or experience of chromosomal abnormalities. Her son, Theo, born at 29 weeks, was diagnosed with Down’s Syndrome and so began her different path. Claire trained as an actress and presenter and is currently working in hospitality marketing. Telling stories and communicating narratives has always been part of her professional life and now is part of her personal life. She is dedicated to raising awareness of a disability that is under the glare of new NIPT testing and is in danger of being eradicated if attitudes are not brought up to date.
Claire has appeared on BBC Radio 2’s Jeremy Vine Show, ITV’s This Morning and BBC1’s Abortion on Trial. Her blog www.mumonadifferentpath.wordpress.com has also been featured in Mother & Baby magazine, The Daily Mail and her local NCT journal.
