Finding out I’m a genetic carrier for my son’s syndrome of CDPX1 was a very tough pill to swallow; and it has a whole slew of implications for my life.

It means I caused all of my son’s hugely challenging and life-threatening birth defects. And it also means that each of our children have a 50/50 chance of inheriting the unlucky genes.

Listen to find out what it was like to receive this life-changing news and what we’ve decided to do about it.

My son has CDXP1 as well, we are in New Zealand, rough at the start, but now nearly 13 years old.
I would never give up what we have been through, it’s life changing yes but it makes you stronger.
