My brother's deaf, and there's a chance our baby will be deaf. We have no idea how big or small the odds are that he will be, but we'll just see and have him assessed once he's here in June!
How are you getting on with your daughter? Things have come a long way since my brother was born ... people are much better educated and there's much more available in the way of resources (for parents and teachers, etc.)
My brother had a cochlear implant when he was a teenager, by the way ... he absolutely hated having it put in and refuses to use it now. Apparently it's best to do these things at a very young age. Is that something you can and would consider for your daughter? Loads of pros and cons there ...
Anyway, hope you're getting on well!

like i say she geting on really well, she wont have the cocler ear implants has she still has hearing and isnt profoned in ne of the hearing levels so she jsut gotta wear her hearing aids, even if ya baby does trun out to be deaf there so much help out there but make sure they sort it out has my little girl was found late so she really suffred wiv her frustration n commincation they only picked it up wen she was 3, but ya little baby will get so much support would recomend baby signing has this could help ya baby commincat n get used to bsl wen he starts using it (if hes deaf) i wish you all the best n hope every thin is fine wiv baby xxx

It sounds like your little girl is getting a huge amount of support, which is so important! My brother wasn't always as lucky and he's still doing really well now, so she'll fly through the things he struggled with (mostly school).
Wishing you and Chloe all the best, and thanks for your good wishes for our baby -- can't wait to meet him!

i know this is an old post.
im glad to hear your dd is doin well.
my dd had a hearing test in june which she failed. she could hear certain pitches but not others and test showed a mild - moderate hearing loss and i was told she may need gromets.
she is having a retest next month so hopefully we will finally have some answers.
she is behind in her speech and doesent have much communication which is causing a lot of frustartion at the moment:(
