Hi Tabs, so did you hear it? Hope I came across okay, it was weird, no idea what it was like from a listeners point of view but thank God I didn't stutter of make a huge mistake or anything!
It was a bit rushed from my POV, a lot to get into 5 mins but hopefully it was ok.
You came across really well. I have no personal experience of Downs, but have reached the decision not to have any testing for it, as I wouldn't terminate whatever the result. It was good to hear that it actually doesn't have to be a big thing if the baby does have it.
Did you know that Charlotte had it before she was born?
By phone, it was only 5 minutes but it it was okay.
I had an email back from Jeremy Vine on Radio 2 today and he was lovley, it was a really nice email. Helped I'm sure by the fact I name dropped, I am related to someone who was a v important person there! Anyway he's passing my email to his producer and said he'd be in touch.
Thomcat, I'm not a regular poster here but wanted to say that I heard you this morning and thought you came across very well. Clear, confident and definitely got your point across and raised awareness. It certainly educated me somewhat. Shame it was radio, I would have loved to have seen your daughter too.
