Hello xxx

Hi, my name is Nic and I have a wonderful 6 yr old diagnosed with BWS immediately after birth and confirmed shortly after. If anyone would like to chat about worries/issues, particularly new mums please drop me line 😊. It can be a scary road full of uncertainites, but support is never far away. Enjoy your babies 😘

  • Hi,

    Deepak here.

    My son is also suffering from BWS. He is now 1year 3month old. Bcz of macroglossia he is with gastrectomy and tracheostomy.

    Can you please let me know if you have seen this type of case?

    Will really appreciate your reply.

    Sorry to ear about your son's problems because of macroglossia. I am not sure of where you live. If it is in the U.K. we have a national macroglossia service at Great Ormond Street Hospital which is excellent. If you email me at r.baker881@btinternet I can let you know more. It is also good to go on the Great Ormond Street website to find out more about BWS and the tongue reduction surgery. Good luck and hope things improve.

  • Hi, u can search for the Beckwith Wideman support group on Facebook and ask to join.. It's a great group and has many families with the same case worldwide.. And all very friendly and helpful to each other..

  • Many thanks for this and good to hear about your daughter. Just to let you know that there is an important meeting next week in Paris to agree a European wide consensus as to how to diagnose and manage BWS. I shall be attending along with medical professionals and a representative from the Italian support group. We also hope to update our website and to include some BWS family stories which should help parents.

    Please also see our Facebook page which can be found at facebook.com/groups/beckwit...
