Antenatal Stories

Discovering that your baby has a complex heart condition can leave expectant parents feeling very frightened and alone even if they are surrounded by caring friends and relatives.

Having an opportunity to read about how other parents travelled similar journeys and learnt to cope with the immense emotion which such diagnosis brings can help with personal decision making and reassure mums and dads that there is a great deal of informed support available to them.

Here we have collected together a number of stories from parents who each chose to travel a different path for their baby. They have each expressed their story with the loving care all parents have for their babies and we are very grateful to them for sharing their story to support other parents as they travel their own personal journey.

If the stories here raise questions, worries or concerns the LHM team are always here for support on 0121 455 8982 or
