For the last 3 months, my unborn baby was been receiving blood transfusions in the womb due to a complication.
Basically, my wife's blood attacked the baby's blood. My previous 2 kids have my blood, the baby has mine also and after 2 births my wife's blood
has decided enough is enough and sees it as a hostile. There is a particular long name for it and we have been told it is rare with not much known
There is no way to prevent it, only way to deal with it is to give the baby transfusions until they are strong enough to enter our world.
So, at 35 weeks, the baby was induced. 4 days later, the baby would still not come out. As another transfusion was due, the decision was made to
have a section. 20 minutes later I was holding this tiny little baby girl.
We only got to see her for a few minutes then she was taken away to special care. After a week, we were allowed to take her home.
Without the wonderful care and attention from the NHS, we would have lost her.
2 weeks later, she is thriving and feeding like a beast. We still have a lot of work to do but we are confident she will be ok.
Right now, she is curled up in my wife's arms with a content look on her face.
