Hi, I have a 4yr old son, Tylah, who was diagnosed with a mixed spastic, dystonic form of Cerebral Palsy when he was in his early months of life. I had a very normal pregnancy up until I was denied a c-section. I knew I was having a large baby & that I wasn't going to be able to have him natural. I was made to try naturaly but Tylah got stuck in the birth canal, which meant he was not getting enough oxygen, Tylah wasn't breathing when they finally pulled him out (weighing 9lbs 14oz) & due to his ordeal, he now has CP! Tylah is unable to walk or sit without support, he also can not talk or feed himself, but apart from all this though, he is a very happy, normal little boy & all my family love him dearly.
