EXPERIENCE OF FAMILIES
For most parents, expecting a new child is a happy and exciting time. As they anxiously await their new arrival, parents may secretly hope for a boy or a girl, for blue eyes or brown eyes, for blonde hair or dark hair. But above all parents simply wish for their child to be healthy.
Being told “there’s something wrong with your baby” can be earth shattering for any parent. Suddenly, the feelings of excitement and anticipation turn to worry and fear. Even more so, when a baby is diagnosed with a condition that will shorten his or her life, the journey to parenthood can take an unexpected turn.
The experience of families is mixed and we are advocating that there is a consistency of care across all services and hospitals.
We will be sharing the experiences of families here. Would you like to share your experience too? If so, please fill in this form and we will publish your story. Thank you!
