Jenny is a very special person to me. I first met her four years ago, she was my very first maternity client! You would not believe what has happened in her life since then! Check out a photo from her first maternity shoot here in Wokingham:
After Jenny had her first baby, she settled into motherhood with the help of her partner. Emily was a beautiful, healthy baby.
When Emily was about two years old Jenny didn't feel well. She didn't think too much about it, and just got on with life, toddlers don't stop just because mum doesn't feel well!
Eventually Jenny ended up at the hospital, still not thinking anything too major was wrong. Imagine everyone's shock when they discovered that Jenny had a stroke! She doesn't fit into any of the stereotypical high risk groups: she was (is) young, not obese, not diabetic, doesn't smoke etc.
As you can imagine life changed very suddenly for them all. When they went to the hospital they were expecting to be home in a few hours. Instead she spent a long time there before she could start her recovery at home.
Almost two years on Jenny's rehabilitation has been remarkable. If you saw her on the street you wouldn't know what she's been through. Her walk might not be perfect, she moves slower and finds it difficult at times to keep up with Emily. It is more of a "hidden" issue she will have to deal with going forward.
However it didn't stop her going on to have another healthy baby girl! Welcome to the world, Sophie! Isn't it amazing what they have overcome! I wish you all the best going forward with your gorgeous family, Jenny! Hope to see you all again soon!
