Ivan’s Story

Ivan Delve, Trisomy 18, 8/3/2013, Basildon, Essex, U.K.

Ivan DelveHi, our son Ivan was diagnosed after a cvs test at 14 weeks with full Edwards.  He had heart and kidney problems and we were advised he would not be able to live . We were devastated, it was like being in an awful dream, we met at 16 weeks with a consultant who explained more about this condition as we had never heard of it before. We came to an awful choice of ending the pregnancy at 17 weeks, this will haunt us forever as when he was born he was so perfect x
