Hi everybody, this week's Warrior Mum is introduced by Lesley, who is a midwife already featured in the WM series and I can assure you it's another brilliant post!
You're married to the lovely Bob; second time for both of you, tell us about your early years together and the birth of your first child.

You've both been handed a question mark during your antenatal checks, how did you prepare?
We shrugged off a 1/297 nuchal fold 'risk' (we now say 'chance' or 'likelihood') of having a baby with Down’s Syndrome as ‘not bad for my age’, (35) and clung to the notion that a healthy, clean-living, vitamin-taking woman would, of course, be expecting another healthy baby.
What a shock for both of you, such a sudden birth. Tell us more about the arrival of your second child and the journey that awaited you.
You must have come across an array of professionals at this point, I'm sure some stood out more than others.
How is life now?
Natty won our hearts, grew stronger, survived heart surgery and flourished, as her proud father always predicted.
Tell us about your blog.

What do you think the future holds?
Hayley, thank you so much for sharing your story with us and I wish you, Natty and all the family a wonderful, healthy and happy life.
