The story of a little girl with Short Gut Syndrome

Follow the story of Clara, a newborn girl living in the UK with Short Gut Syndrome as a result of malrotation with volvulus (her intestines were twisting and as a result a large proportion didn’t survive the restricted blood supply).

Written by her mum, you can read about the ups and the downs, the medical miracles, and what family life is like with a chronic illness.

Always remember, you are your child’s biggest advocate. You can give them the best life possible. Doctors see many patients, but you know your child best. Don’t be afraid to ask questions or stand up for what you believe in.
