So I’ve got CF (Cystic Fibrosis) my pregnancy so far is going so much better than I could of imagined. Weight gain and lung function being the highest since 2012 I feel I can’t really complain! This wee babe has helped me in so many ways I can’t even begin to explain them all!
Baby is growing, and on average for weight and measurements (femur is 1.5weeks behind but they insist it’s because I’m 5ft1 and that they’ll have little Scottish legs) so trying not to get overly worried but they’re just under 50th percentile now.
However.. people with CF tend to have a short life expectancy.
I’m wondering if there is anything I can put into place that if I were to die - say after the baby is born or even 5 years later - is there something I can do to give my mum legal guardianship? She’s a bit worried that my partner might suddenly decide to disappear or maybe not let her see the child very much once I’m gone
I don’t think that would be the case, but I guess it’s just a worry for her!
so I’m wondering if anyone knows if there’s anything legal I could put in place that she has parental type rights for once I’m gone?
Any advice would be much appreciated
