Theme: Welcoming a Baby that is Different

In this video broadcast on Sunday, March 4, 2018, and pre-recorded at CHU Sainte-Justine, I am accompanied by Mrs. Stéphanie Santos, nurse coordinator, and Mrs. Marie Roberge, a social worker.

Welcoming a baby that is different is a reality many parents need to face with little or no preparation.

It is always a shock when we learn that our baby will have health issues. Every parent wants to welcome a perfect baby, and the fact that they will be different brings out a lot of emotions.

CHU Sainte-Justine caregivers Mrs. Stéphanie Santos and Mrs. Marie Roberge are devoted to this cause and talk to us in a very caring way.
