  • Awareness Week 2018: Louise’s Story

    My husband and close family were amazing and were such a good support network, but nothing could help with my worrying. I hated my pregnancy, hated everything about it. I couldn't get excited about anything...I was very worried what others were going to think and whether they would blame us. I couldn’t tell anyone how I truly felt as I didn't think anyone understood.
