I am so sorry to hear about your situation. It is very unusual for families to have more than one child with BWS. But as you say this is due to a problem with your chromosome 11. I am really glad your second child is doing well and I hope your recent baby gets good treatment and makes good progress. I do hope you and your family are getting good support, both medically and emotionally, to help you cope with everything you are dealing with. I wish you all the very best.


Hi, there is a Facebook group that can help you. The name is Beckwith Wiedemann and it is a closed group. Please look for the group. Are your babies follow the protocol? AFP every 6 weeks until 4 years old, and abdominal ultrasound every 3 months until 8 years old. Please start the protocol asps. The protocol saves lives!


So sorry to hear of your situation. The private BWS f/book group is great. Many knowledgeable people and quick responses. All the best and might see you on there (I hardly ever get to log into this group).
