Manage episode 282823252 series 2797024
Hi Mom Friends & all friends tuning in!
The Momologists are rolling out the red carpet for their guests, on tonights episode! Not just 1, but 2 (yes, you read that correctly) guests on the podcast for that extra dose of support! Kayla & Jessica are two SickKids Mamas, Advocates, & Educators. Their mission is to provide support & resources for parents, families, & friends of hospitalized & medically complex babies & children. They are flippin' SUPER HEROS!
Jessica is a proud mama of two beautiful boys, Theo and Christian. Both boys were born with a condition called Gastroschisis (gast-roh-SKEE-sis), which according to Kids Health (2019) is when, “a baby is born with the intestines sticking out through a hole in the belly wall near the umbilical cord. Sometimes other organs also stick out. It's a life-threatening condition that needs treatment right away”.
Kayla has a beautiful son named Adam. Adam was born with a condition called Esophageal Atresia; “a congenital medical condition (birth defect) that affects the alimentary tract. It causes the esophagus to end in a blind-ended pouch rather than connecting normally to the stomach.”
Listen in while the Momologists open a safe space for raw and real feelings to be heard. Jessica and Kayla give advice on what to say and what to not say to parents with children in the hospital. They share their advice and dreams for Beyond the Beads to be the support system they wished for themselves. What their biggest advice to parents who are going through similar experiences is and talk about an incredible children's book they helped to create!
