What do you do when you realize your child has special needs and considerations? For some parents of children who have special needs, they may feel isolated and overwhelmed by living outside “the norm.”

In this episode of Yoga | Birth | Babies, I speak with Bridget Tichar. Bridget is the mother of Teddy, her 2 1/2 son, who a year ago was diagnosed with Type One Diabetes. Bridget shares the painstaking efforts she goes through on a daily basis to advocate for her son and keep him alive. She open and honestly talks about the challenges of raising a child with special needs and how this can make her feel judged by others. Whether it is Type One Diabetes, ADHD, learning disabilities, or any other issue, the commonalities of what Bridget discussed can still apply and offer support.
