Heart to Heart linky was set up to help other heart families share their stories and experiences in order to help support each other as a community. It opens on the 15th of each month and stays open for a week so there is plenty of time to share your CHD-related posts. You can share as many posts as you like – old posts or new posts, updates on how your heart child is progressing, poems, advice – whatever you like as long as it is related to life as a heart family. If you would like to add the code below to your post that would be great and please do visit other posts in the link too! I’ll also try and share posts on Twitter – and will try and retweet those with the hashtag #hearttoheartlinky
Thank you to everyone who linked up last month. Heart Mummy shared details of the #hospitalbreastfeeding campaign which aims to improve support for breastfeeding mums with babies on children’s wards and Confessions of a NICU Mum shared a beautifully honest, open and powerful letter to her son, the heart warrior. Swallow, My Sunshine reflected on the need for supporting the families of children with complex medical conditions prompted by a tragic news story and Northumberland Mam celebrated being seven years on from both her girls having open heart surgery.
We’ve had two big milestones this month – my heart warrior turned five and started school. I’m sharing a post about how I prepared for starting school which includes a template for the information sheet I used for the school plus the latest update from Jessica’s blog.
I have added posts previously linked up to Heart to Heart on my Pinterest board as well as sharing other CHD-related posts. If you would like an invite to pin to it, please do let me know. Looking forward to reading your heart-related posts this month.
