Iris Nawarski

Iris is a twin and had a left CDH diagnosed at the 20 week scan.  She was born at 37 weeks by elective section at St George’s Hospital.  She was taken straight to the fabulous NICU for breathing support via the oscillator.  At day 5 she was strong enough to have her CDH repaired and she eventually came home after 28 days.  Unfortunately she became unwell 10 days later and returned to St George’s with bowel obstruction.  However following a second operation, a short stay in the PICU and another week in hospital she returned home and hasn’t looked back since.  She is now nearly 8 months and knows exactly what she wants and when she wants it!!! We are very lucky and extremely grateful to healthcare staff, family and friends for all they have done for us.
