This is the story of when we received Freya's diagnosis and how I handled it. I share a poem, "Kintsugi" that I wrote describing the emotions, the turmoil and what we gained from that moment. I close this episode with information on Prader-Willi Syndrome as found on the website pwsausa.org.
For three and a half months we cared for our baby who was hypotonic, not eating well, sleeping too much and generally not thriving. We did not have answers for why. This episode deals with the fear and heart ache of those months, along with the ways that we coped.
To begin this journey, I tell Freya's birth story, when my desired home birth became a much feared cesarean.
In this episode I explain my motivations and intentions for creating this podcast, and how people may get in touch and share their stories.
