Spina bifida. Hydrocephalus. Chiari Malformation. Clubfoot.
Words and diagnoses that can be daunting and frightening, especially depending on how the medical provider breaks the news and explains them.
Far too often, the darkest scenario is painted, and currently in the U.S., only about 36% of babies diagnosed with spina bifida allowed to be born. In some countries, they laud their near-100% 'eradication'.
Fear is powerful. Fear is controlling.
But hope is stronger than fear.
