Health knowledge made personal
I'm Catherine, the author of Reuben Jack & Callum Andreas. Reuben was born with CHARGE Syndrome, a rare genetic disorder affecting 1 in 10,000 births. This is the story of the challenges I as their mother faced in conceiving after 6 years of infertility, surgery and IVF, the miraculous story of Reuben who has undergone 10 surgeries including Open Heart and the wonderful addition of Callum to our family, a much longed for brother and companion for Reuben. My blog aims to provide information on children's health, the hows and whys of baby signing, special needs parenting, navigational medical jargon and fighting for your rights, coping with infertility and infertility treatments, and inspirational child photography and tips.
