I know that between all of us, we have all probably experienced most of these major high risk conditions. What I am looking for is online resources for each of these conditions. I can do it all myself by googling, but if there is a site out there that helped you, I would love to hear about it so I can post it there and maybe help someone newly diagnosed and scared. Stories of your own experiences are welcome too (but remember to be gentle)
I'm posting in this Stillbirth board subforum specifically because I really need your help with the thread for high risk pregnancies after prior stillbirths. If you know of any informational sites, support communities, please share! For those of you currently experiencing/have already experienced sub pregnancies, your knowledge and experiences are welcome!
I've read this but honestly the only website I frequently came to after losing g Roald was this board. His umbilical cord was thin/lean and they THINK that what happened is it got twisted and cut off his blood and oxygen. So...it was a type of cord accident I guess. They said this problem is not genetic and that they never really know exactly what causes it.
Megan (Colm's mother) said at first they believed this is what happened to her boy as well.
When I Googled it though, it gave me alot of sugarcoating on the things I looked at. It pretty much didn't mention lean umbilical cords causing fatalities at all-just babies that are small for gestational age (Roald was) and they usually have to be delivered via C-section.
