Audrey Confidential: Hemangioma on Babies (my Victoria has one) – Advice, Tips and Information
My baby girl Victoria was born with a hemangioma.
I’m going to be honest, I didn’t know what a hemangioma was until she was born. When she was in the hospital, I noticed a pink patch on her head, but we literally thought it was just a little mark or a bruise from her delivery. As the days progressed, the mark became more and more apparent and a doctor at the hospital told us it most likely was a hemangioma. They told us it could get redder and raised for the first 6-9 months of her life and that over time it would start to regress. As a parent, you just want everything healthy for your child… so my biggest concern was if it would hurt her.
I have been assured that Victoria can’t feel it. I really hope that’s the case. I know that it will get more raised over the next few months and that we just have to be prepared for that. I just wanted to share this because I would love advice, tips or stories from other moms and dads who have gone through this with their child.
Thanks for listening…
