How the patch was hatched....

My name is Maggie, I invented The Down the Hatch Patch for my daughter and for me!  After getting the news that my daughter needed a low profile g-tube I searched the Internet and was disappointed to find there was not much out there but horror stories!  I am an active person and wanted to expose my daughter to as much as I could, so I sat at went over all the issues I read about on the blogs and the idea was hatched...The Down the Hatch Patch!

It has improved the quality of life for our family and now when I feed my daughter in public people see her and not her tube.  Her doctors, nurses, and therapists love it because it has drastically reduced her stomach viruses and in 7 years the tube has never been pulled out!
