Leticia Keighley from Australia recently shared with us the beautiful story of her pregnancy on her blog: Embracing Wade. She offers a raw and authentic account of her experience “waiting it out” after receiving a 1:69 chance of having a baby with Down syndrome.
“My pregnancy was definitely a roller coaster of emotions where I questioned my resolve, my decisions and my sanity every time I got a new test result. But right from the beginning, all the way through till now, I had reasons why I didn’t want to test for Down Syndrome. This post is not about what I think everyone should do, it’s about what I did and how it helped me get through the turmoil of prenatal diagnosis. Even though there were ups and downs during those 9 months, by the time Wade was born, I was ready and happy and waiting there with open arms to meet him whether he had DS or not and if any of my thought processes help other women in similar circumstances then its achieved its purpose.”
Below is our list of blogs from other moms who received a prenatal diagnosis and then blogged about the experience during their pregnancy. Those stories are so real and meaningful to expectant parents who can then go on to read the outcome for families.
