Sia born at 30 weeks

Sia was born in her 30th week. The hospital did everything they could to stop her but she had a mind of her own early on. She was on CPAP for a short time and otherwise was doing extremely well. On day 7 they did a routine head scan and discovered that Sia had suffered a severe brain bleed (bi lateral). We were told she could be blind, deaf, have a low iq or have cerebral palsy. We were devastated and knowing it would be a long wait to see what the damage would be was hard.

After nearly two months we got to bring our baby home. Three weeks later she was not herself, we were sent to emergency and after a horrible day of tests we were told she had bacterial meningitis and had to be moved to ICU. We spent close to a month in hospital. Once home we had MRI's to check what damage her brain bleed had done. Shortly after she was diagnosed with cerebral palsy.

Sia has shown how important therapy is. She rarely used her left arm, through intervention she now has perfect symmetry. Her brain has created new pathways. We wanted to give her every opportunity to be her best and ReadyStepGrow is everything we were looking for. A place where we could give her the best start in an environment that is fun and relaxed.
