Gastroschisis Support Group, Australia
I created a website, because my son was lucky enough to survive Gastroschisis at birth - a defect in the abdominal wall which allows some bowel, and sometimes other parts, to spill and develop on the outside during pregnancy.
This support group was created for all families who have had experience with Gastroschisis. You could actually be the Gastroschisis miracle baby yourself... Or are you the mum, Or dad?... Whoever you are, we want to hear from you. A lot of mums are so distraught when they hear the news of their baby having this birth defect, that they don't completely understand it and become frightenened, and stressed more then they need to be.
The aim of our site is to bring together these families and share experiences so that new mothers have a support network of people who have gone through the same thing, have more information available to them that originates in the one place and in turn, are more prepared and calm about the road ahead of them.
