Healing My Daughter

My daughter was born weighing 10lbs 2oz after the labour from hell. Within 5 minutes of her being born, she was given trimethoprim, an antibiotic. She didn’t have any infection, but was considered to be at risk from infection. She continued to take this antibiotic every day for 6 years. It failed to prevent infection, so on top of this, she had another 20 courses of antibiotics before she was 6 years old.

She received her early vaccinations on time. At age 6 months, she was constantly regurgitating small amounts of her feed, I thought this was normal. She was a poor sleeper. She had protested profusely at being put onto bottled milk when I returned to work.
