At 20 weeks pregnant, our colleague Chris Manning and his partner Deborah, were told that their daughter Jovie was “incompatible with life” and were advised for the pregnancy to be terminated 💔
Jovie made it to full term, came out breathing and can now sit up, roll over and take a bottle 🍼💪 She’s currently over 6 months old (at time of writing) and is completely and utterly beautiful!
In November 2021, #TeamHerrco raised £886 for Jovie’s Journey Charity (a charity set up to support those given an “incompatible with life” prognosis during pregnancy).
Update: On 11 April 2022, baby Jovie passed away after battling for a year and 11 days. Chris & Deborah continue to support other families who are going through what they had gone through with Jovie. Read updates at Jovie’s Journey Charity Facebook page.
