Help Save Babies! Universal Thyroid Screening In Pregnancy

Help Save Babies! Universal Thyroid Screening in Pregnancy

I wonder if I am crazy to think I can change the world, but something deep inside me tells me that this is what I am supposed to do. I launched my blog Hypothyroid Mom on October 1st, 2012 in memory of the unborn baby I lost to hypothyroidism and in dedication to my two boys who beat the odds and made it to the world. When I wrote that first post Have You Suffered A Miscarriage?

Somehow I knew my unborn baby was watching over me. I know my mission to bring about UNIVERSAL THYROID SCREENING IN PREGNANCY is my destiny. I lost my unborn baby so needlessly. I will ensure my baby did not die in vain by saving babies all across the globe. With your help I will make this happen.
