Tiffany and Nathan: Aicardi and Turner syndrome

Tiffany and Nathan went to their 20 week appointment excited to find out the gender of their baby. While at their appointment, they out that their baby, who they named Ellie, had some abnormalities with her stomach, which is a marker for Down syndrome. Tiffany and Nathan started meeting bi-weekly with a Parineonatologist, where they continued to find markers of Down syndrome. After several ultrasounds with the doctor, they found that Ellie was missing the portion of her brain that separates the hemispheres, which is not typical of Down syndrome. An hour before she was born, Ellie was diagnosed with Aicardi syndrome and it was not until she was three days old that she was diagnosed with Turner syndrome.
