Tell Us About Your Journey Into Motherhood
“I have 2 beautiful babies, a 2 year old toddler, Sophia, and my little man, Harry, who is 10 months old.
I was 15 weeks pregnant when I learned that Harry would be born with an extra chromosome. While it was a shock initially, as I just assumed I would have another typical baby (why I assumed this, I still have no idea!) But after weeks of worry , sadness, being both nervous and anxious in equal measures, I threw myself into our new normal and read all I could about Down syndrome, what it would mean for us, our family and our new baby. Harry arrived at 37 weeks and spent 6 weeks between NICU and SCBU with various health issues. I’m happy to say now he is thriving and going from strength to strength.
It has been the most amazing, eye opening, priority changing, perspective shifting, scariest but happiest 10 months of our lives since Harry was born. He has changed our family, both immediate and extended, for the better and he is truly the blessing we never knew we wanted! “
