The website "Perinatal Hospice and Palliative Care: A Gift of Time" is a wealth of information for parents who have received a negative prenatal diagnosis for their unborn child. Often, parents in such a situation are encouraged to terminate the pregnancy rather than continue it. However, there is another choice - to carry a pregnancy, even with a negative diagnosis. There is help and support for parents who choose this road, and one of the best places to find it is on this website, which is edited by Amy Kuebelbeck, author of Waiting with Gabriel: A Story of Cherishing a Baby's Brief Life (Loyola Press, 2003). The website includes lists of resources for both parents and caregivers, supportive organizations around the United States and the world, and the positive stories of parents who have chosen to carry their child for as long as they were allowed to. Please share this with others or, if you have been presented with this choice, check it out yourself.
