Hi I'm 24 weeks pregnant with 4th child. I've just been told my unborn son has a collapsed stomach which is probably due to a Tracheoesophageal fistula or TEF. This was first picked up at my 20 week scan and has been monitored with regular scans. We've been referred to another hospital for more tests etc but as I can't really find any threads about this, I'm wondering if anyone else has had this? My main concern is what it might mean for his long term health? Anyone??

Hi, I am sorry to hear this x I'm not sure if you are aware but this has come under holidays, maybe ask for it to be moved to children's health? I hope you are ok x
