Story

We noticed our babies head was flattening at around a week old, we voiced our concerns with doctors, the health visitor and family who told us yes it looked bad but it would correct. At 8 months we were referred to the borders general and saw a consultant. She told us it would correct and booked a second appointment. We were told it was bad but it would improve. Second appointment came and we still noticed how bad his head was. Everybody started telling us it looked better and we doubted there was anything wrong. The hospital made another follow up appointment and we left feeling deflated.

It wasnt until a few days before Beaudens first birthday i came across Technology in Motion and thought a second opinion might help ease our minds. We got there to be told he has a severe plagiocephaly and brachycephaly and we need to start treatment as soon as possible in order to get the best results. I am prepared to bankrupt myself in order to provide this treatment but have been told to try and fundraise before doing this.

Beauden is my third child and my partners first and never before have i come across plagiocephaly but my biggest regret is not trusting my gut. Our boy is a happy, clever little monster but we want to help him now before it is too late to correct. No baby deserves to be told the nhs will not fund their treatment when they give money out for other causes!

    Less than a week until B gets his TiMband fitted! We have been speaking to other parents throughout the UK who are also going private for treatment for plagiocephaly and brachycephaly. They have started a petition to send to Parliament to have the treatment pushed to the NHS. I guess anything is worth a shot! Hopefully one day parents will be educated early enough on the choices available to them. Thanks for all the donations we are still pushing for our £2025 total. Getting as close as possible will really help. 🥰

We are Beaudens mum and dad. We are so annoyed at the wrong information the NHS gave us by telling us the head shape would correct by itself and it has not. We are only trying to do what is best for our baby.
