Every one of us DS parents has a poignant birth story. But this is one worth reading. Now, would someone set Dr. Foley up with seminars to teach OB-GYNs and pediatricians how to break the news to new parents that their child has DS?
Dr. Foley hugged me and told me she got to hold her for her examination, but now she wanted to hold her just for some snuggles. And she did.
Wow! That, physicians, is how it is done.
But that is not why you should read this birth story. Read it because it tells of one mother’s journey, overnight, through a valley of pain.
…and then morning came. …and with it, hope.
