My daughter was born after a normal pregnancy but emergency delivery and she had a puffy foot, I made fun of it saying she had fat feet like me from my pregnancy and a nurse picked it up, she said that it was commonly connected to Turner Syndrome so tests were ran on her and sure enough she was diagnosed, she underwent heart, hip and kidney scans and they all came back clear but the stress on a new first time mum was enormous. My daughter will have short stature and it’ll be unlikely she has kids without IVF and an egg donor. 98% of pregnancies end in miscarriage or stillbirth so my little girl is a miracle.

  • Wow congratulations on the birth of your daughter. Wishing you all the best xox


  • I am so happy that you have your little miracle! Enjoy! :)


  • I’m sorry you had such a stressful start after your labour, but am glad that your daughter has come through this. Wishing you both all the best for future endeavours.


  • Congratulations on your little miracle … I hope the future brings lots of joy.


  • It sounds like she’ll be ok in the long run. Good luck.


  • I have never heard of it either.
    Maybe by the time she wants to have kids, things may have change in the medical world


  • it is good that you have an early diagnosis and all your other scans came back ok.


  • i hadn’t heard of this. It sounds like she can still live a great life. She might have issues dealing with not having her “own” baby down the track but she turned out to be your miracle so maybe she will defy the doctors on that aspect as well. Never say never! Maybe you could donate your eggs to her in the future- depending on your situation. A mother just donated her uterus to her daughter and her daughter had a baby.


  • She must have been a real little fighter to arrive safely for you. Fortunately in today’s world IVF is a fairly common method for couples needing help to conceive. Thanks to the medical advances these birth defects are a thin of the past.
