~~ Kellie shares her story ~~
From 20 weeks I was told my daughter had hydroclephalus. I was offered a termination which I refused even though I knew she could be disabled. I didn’t mind because she was still my baby.
I had some scans along the way which showed the fluid increasing but everything else seemed fine with her.
The week before I was due for my c-section I had an appointment with my midwife, and she couldn’t find the heartbeat. I got sent to the hospital were a scan was done and I was told the devastating news that my baby girl’s heart had stopped.
That was 2.5 weeks ago and my heart is broken.
We had a funeral last week for Tayla Mai were all our families attended and her other siblings to say our goodbyes. She has 5 older brothers and one older sister so she was coming home to a big family who were all excited to meet her.
We have a follow up appointment in 8 weeks to discover if there was any other reason other than the hydroclephalus that caused this. Hopefully we will get some answers to our questions.
