What do you do when your baby has an obvious problem, but doctors won't help because his condition is not considered a life-threatening illness? This couple went across the world to find a way to give their son every chance at a normal life.
When they realised that their baby boy's head was flat on one side, they approached doctors for help, only to be told that there was none. It was up to them to research the condition (positional plagiocephaly or Flathead Syndrome), and find treatment for their son overseas. Since then they have started a support group in South Africa. Read about their experience.
