The many challenges of VACTERL, with Skye and Kieran Burke

Episode 29

Skye and Kieran Burke always thought one child would be enough, yet very quickly the desire for another became stronger and they fell pregnant with their son, Jack. But this pregnancy was nothing like they expected. Jack was diagnosed with VACTERL – a group of birth defects that require multiple major surgeries.  This week, Skye and Kieran share how they navigated the many days spent in hospital, why Kieran was urged to seek professional help before Jack was born and how they believe a positive mindset is essential when faced with any diagnosis.
