Mothers of Children with Hemangiomas (birthmark)

This group is for mother of children born with a Hemangioma (birthmark). A hemangioma is a vascular malformation of the face or internaly. This form of birthmark is a misgrowing of the veins in the skin or body and will grow usualy for the first six months of a childs life. Sometimes needing medical intervention. My daughter was born with hers but most arn't present on a child till they are around a week old. I would like this to be a sort of support group for mothers of these children. I would love to share treatment informantion and options with you. I will post link to info when I have a chance. My daughter is currently still under treatment so we have to travel to take her to BC Childrens Hospital alot. I don't care if you just need someone to talk to that's ok :) This is so common I can't beleive there isn't a group up here already. 1 in 20 children are born with these birthmarks and there are beter options out there than steroids. My daughter has glasses now because of the steroids and she is only 8 months old.
