Doctors had to perform an emergency caesarean section, when the father saw the baby’s face the whole room went silent.

Pregnancy can be a difficult time for a woman.


In addition to all the physical aspects of carrying a baby in the womb, there is also a constant fear that there will be something wrong with the baby.

But fortunately, in most cases everything goes smoothly. The worries and anxieties change into a sense of relief the second the child is born healthy.

But Jennie Wilco has never had the experience of feeling this relief – quite the contrary.


Jennie had a fairly normal pregnancy. She and her husband were happy to find out they were pregnant, and all the tests came out normal.

But clouds of worry began to accumulate when Jennie had to undergo a caesarean section in her 34th week of pregnancy. Although the surgery and delivery were successful, it soon became apparent that there was a problem with Jennie’s

But seconds later, the mood in the room changed. The baby’s face changed.


A number of nurses and doctors were startled when they saw what was happening to a newborn baby.

After the doctor assured Jennie that things were under control, she was given a sedative that made her fall asleep.

When she woke up a few hours later, the doctor informed Jennie. It turns out that her baby, Anna, suffers from Harlequin Ichthyosis.


She looked at her husband when she realized the seriousness of the situation.

“My husband’s silence scared me. He was only in shock when the doctor left the room. He just kept saying it was not good”.

The disease Harlequino ichthyosis is a genetic disorder that causes the skin to grow 14 times faster than normal. It creates redness all over the body, which affects the eyes, mouth, nose and ears.

“For the next two days I searched for information about her illness. I realized she was expecting a bad quality of life. I allowed myself to admit it, because it was the most confused and lonely moment of my life. At that moment I

But it turned out that Jennie gave birth to a very strong baby girl.


The parents brought her home and did their best to take care of Anna.

Jennie told about the struggle in the first days:

Despite the difficulties, Anna gave her mother a new perspective on life.


Since then, Jennie has set up an Instagram account documenting her and her daughter’s journey.

What do you think of Jennie and Anna’s story? We think they show that there is also room for love, difference, and warmth in a world that could have been cold and gloomy.


Sometimes we do not always get what we dream of, but if we can accept that everyone is born different and that there are people who do not look like other people, it means we have come a long way.

The fact that Jennie is so open and willing to tell her and Anna’s story, it means a lot.

Please share this with friends and family if you too think Anna is a cute and sweet girl!
