In this episode I speak to Abby, entrepreneur and founder of Pursuing Her Purpose and podcast host on the HERself Podcast. Abby is a mama to three and inclusion advocate. In this episode she shares her journey through a prenatal diagnosis of Downs Syndrome, the emotions and processing that came alongside that unexpected news and how she learned the power of the AND. You can love your baby AND grieve the image you had for them. You can be grateful that your baby arrived safely AND wish they had a simpler life ahead of them.
When it comes to unexpected news in pregnancy or after the arrival of a baby, all feelings are valid. It's ok to feel conflicted, confused, lost, sad or disappointed. It doesn't mean you love your baby less. It means you are human.
