During any pregnancy, you will go through many tests. In fact, a test to determine pregnancy is how most journeys begin.
Factors like age, family history, and health can increase risks in pregnancy and cause even more tests. When I got pregnant for the second time, I was older, 34. Plus having multiples, I was considered high-risk and it was recommended that I do genetic screening at 12 weeks.
The results we got were not what we wanted to hear, and it was the beginning of a very intense and complicated pregnancy. Today’s mother had a similar experience when she had a test early in her pregnancy.
Their story is one of incredible hope and also a testament to how tests can be wrong.
I’m so happy to introduce you to Elise, as told by her mom, Tessa.
