Good episode? Give it some love!
Many people are unaware that children and babies can have strokes, and parents are often left with nowhere to turn. Fortunately that situation is changing, with support groups for parents and the new Our Family’s Stroke Journey resource from the Stroke Foundation. In this podcast, we talk about what it’s like to have a baby or child who’s had a stroke, what can cause the stroke and what can be done about it, and what help is available.

We speak to Dee Honeychurch and Kylie Facer, mothers of children who’ve had strokes and co-founders of the support group Little Stroke Warriors Australia; paediatric neurologist Associate Professor Mark Mackay from the Royal Children’s Hospital Melbourne and member of the Stroke Foundation’s Clinical Council; and Katherine David from the Stroke Foundation, who managed the development of the resource Our Family’s Stroke Journey.
