I just wondered if any of you can shed some light,
My friend has just found out her 6 week old baby has almost paralysed vocal cords (open) and fluid keeps going to her chest - doctors amazed she's not got pneumonia already
I've never heard of this but really want to support my friend. She's really been through it. She tried for 7 years for this baby, 5th attempt of IVF. Had an extremely traumatic time during and after birth. Baby very small, 6lbs even though a week late, she kept going blue and not taking milk from mum's breast. Mum's been exhausting herself trying to express milk for her baby which she kept choking on
Has anyone had any experience of this? Is it treatable? Will she grow out of it?
yes she has made it to 6 weeks but been in and out of hospital because of choking. She was in hospital for a week after the birth as her breathing kept stopping. It's so sad especially as it seems one thing after another Mum is really scared as baby keeps getting infections which could develop into pneumonia. I know no one deserves this but it's been such an effort for them to conceive in the 1st place.
