Firstly I just wanted to say I dont mean to offend anyone in this post. I have absolute respect for kids with special needs and their amazing parents.
I work in a preschool doing support work with special needs kids (anything from autism, chromosomal abnormalities, speech and hearing problems) I recently did some work in a special school and at 14 weeks pregnant it has made me really worried about all of the "what ifs" I suppose all of those things we worry about when pregnant were suddenly in front of me in reality and it has really got me scared and anxious that there migh be something wrong with my baby, and that I wouldn't be able to cope if something did go wrong.
For those who work as nurses, doctors, OTs, teachers, speech paths or anyone who works with special people (or actually anyone in general!!) - how did you over come the worstcase scenario thinking?? I am going to speak to my gp next week but would love some advice on how I can get over this way of thinking. I'm really struggling.
