Please keep in contact with us here. The support was very important for me as I went thru this with my son. Yes, hemangiomas are typically discovered a few days or weeks after birth. You are likely dealing with a NICH or RICH. I would highly recommend keeping in contact with the specialists on the VBF website to make sure you are getting the right information from local doctors. It really helped me to confirm my son's treatment with leading experts.... (all was correct with our local care... just helpful to confirm you are getting accurate info). It will be ok. Good luck with delivery and we will be anxious to hear your updates. Feel free to email me anytime.
