Talking about Prader-Willi syndrome with the host of Walking with Freya

As a newborn, Anne Fricke’s second daughter Freya had trouble nursing, slept really soundly, and had hypotonia (low muscle tone). At three and a half months of age, Freya was diagnosed with Prader-Willi syndrome. Anne shares her family’s experience with Freya’s initial diagnosis, how she found support within the Prader-Willi community, and what their challenges are now that Freya is 8 years old. Anne also shares how she has used writing and poetry to help process her feelings and how this led her to start her podcast, Walking With Freya.
