Starting from zero
In January 2020, Stéphanie Ratté was pregnant and the mother of an 18-month-old girl when her life was turned upside down in a matter of days. Thankfully, the Parents Plus Clinic came to her rescue with material, psychological and parental assistance.
At the age of 31, Stéphanie Ratté was dividing her time between her work as a nursing assistant, raising her one-year-old daughter and preparing for the baby she was carrying. But her life changed in an instant when she was struck down by Guillain Barré syndrome in early 2020. This neurological disorder paralyzes its victim as the body’s immune system attacks its peripheral nerves.
