When my daughter was born I wondered why I wasn’t feeling that strong bond as we lay beside each other in the hospital. We received a post-natal diagnosis of Down syndrome when Síofra was born.

I wondered if that was why I wasn’t connecting with her. I felt really guilty about it. Myself and my husband had desperately wanted our own child.

We went through IVF unsuccessfully. We were thrilled to be pregnant. So I really wondered why I wasn’t besotted. I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to see past her diagnosis.
