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!

    Im a bit late again with an update so apologies! Once again we had fab results! Beauden has now reached the yellow bracket which at the beginning we were told we might not get into! We are there! He has done amazing but has now decided taking his helmet on and off is a really fun game! It was decided by Sandie that he only wear it at nap times and bedtimes so we don't risk it getting broken and at his age this is when he does the majority of his growing. We have another appointment on the 17th of September and are hoping for further results!

    I meant to update on tuesday with the latest results but its been a busy week with the appointment, his big sisters nursery trip, my birthday and a weekend spent at the seaside! We had a 2mm growth this time! I know to most reading it doesnt sound much but we are thrilled! Combined with his age and the fact he thinks its a great game taking his helmet on and off he is still going in the right direction! We have another appointment on the 6th of August so hoping for similar results then ☺️

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.
