    • News

In the second of a two-part series, Rhys talks to Janet and her husband Steve about living with epilepsy - and the resultant effects the medication has had on their children, including FACS (Fetal Anti-Convulsant Syndrome). From changes in understanding of epilepsy since the 80s, and the health consequences of the medication, through to family life, autism, the internet and online support networks of the present, this wide-ranging discussion gives a personal insight into one family who have been affected in a multitude of ways by epilepsy.
