In this webinar, Kristy Dickinson and Brenda Agnew are joined by Fabiana Bacchini, Executive Director of the Canadian Premature Babies Foundation. Fabiana is the author of From Surviving to Thriving – A Mother’s Journey Through Infertility, Loss and Miracles and is a mother of 2 boys. Her youngest son, Gabriel, has quadriplegia cerebral palsy.
Recalling the early days spent in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Fabiana discusses the struggles she faced as a new caregiver while adjusting to her family’s “new normal” and the feelings that came with Gabriel’s diagnosis. She also shares how she learned to navigate the healthcare system, the immense value of joining a peer support program, and provides some helpful resources.
The full conversation with Fabiana is available in the videobelow. (Available in English only).
