Intrauterine Growth Restriction: My Sister’s Experience Part IV

Hi and welcome to the fourth part of the IUGR series my sister and I have collaborated on. Part I was an intro to my sister and discussed her third baby’s diagnosis with intrauterine growth restriction, Part II was all about the intense end of Hannah’s pregnancy and Titus’ birth, and Part III explained what the hospital stay was like with a small baby and how it impacted Hannah’s family life.

Today, in Part IV, we’re going to talk about Hannah’s experience bringing Titus home from the hospital!

Below are nine small ways I add big amounts of joy to my everyday life. Please share how you add joy to your life in the comments!
