Emily Kate Whitney born 17th January, 2011

Emily was born by emergency c-section at 2 o'clock on 17th January, 2011 at West Suffolk Hospital. She weighed 6lb 14oz.

When her brother Sam was born, he had negligible blood sugar levels and was found to be suffering from Congenital Hyper Insulinism, a recessive genetic condition which effects about 1 in 30,000 new births. Emily has a 1 in 4 chance of inheritting the same condition, so she was immediately taken to intensive care for monitoring.

Thankfully, she was given a clean bill of health and is now home - healthy and growing fast!
