Stories of Blood Disorder Pregnancies are scattered all over the web. If you have the time and the resources to search for them all, there is some amazing information, but the real stories are often hidden behind hard to decipher medical journals and websites. Here are a few that I found really helpful while I was looking for help online with my ITP Pregnancy.
HUGGIES FORUM – Pregnancy and ITP. Here is a link to a forum where a number of women discuss their pregnancies with ITP. They are all very positive stories about being monitored a lot, but not much else going wrong.
PLATELETS ON THE WEB – Christy shares her story of ITP for more than 20 years. During that time, she gave birth to a healthy baby girl. The whole story is here.
BABY CENTER – The story of a scheduled C-Section for a breech ITP baby.
An ARTICLE ON NAIT, or Neonatal Alloimmune Thrombocytopenia. Here is a news article about the Jacob’s family who gave birth to two babies with Neonatal Alloimmune Thrombocytopenia.
Are you interested in sharing your ITP Pregnancy Story?
ITP & Me are currently calling out to any women or families who have experience with ITP Pregnancies and would be willing to share their stories, be interviewed or contribute in any way to a new book about ITP Pregnancy coming out next year. You may remain anonymous if you wish.
