In November 2019 we went to the Royal Surrey in Guildford for our 12 week scan. The excitement we were feeling previously very quickly went as we were told there was too much fluid around our baby and we were sent for further scanning at St. George’s Hospital.
At 16 weeks pregnant we found out our baby had a condition called Noonan Syndrome. We were under the care of the Fetal Medicine Team and due to me having Polyhydramnios I had to have amniotic fluid drained twice. They were fantastic and kept a close eye on us.
Because of the risks involved with my pregnancy, Harriet had to be delivered at St. George’s at 38+3 weeks via c section and Harriet spent 3 weeks in the neonatal unit. The care Harriet received was second to none, the support we received was incredible too. We were kept informed with everything going on and everyone was so friendly. Three days after Harriet was born it was my birthday and the nurses in intensive care had made me a birthday card from Harriet which I treasure still.
Thank you to everybody who cared for us!
