    Just spoken with my HV, about something completely unrelated to the results. But HV brought them up by going.. 'Oh I take it you've had your letter now? No? Well I got a copy 2 weeks ago.' Aghhhhh! I've heard & received nothing about them.

    So I ask what the results were, to be told..
    'It says she's a HBA Carrier, so i'll see you next week for a check up anyway and we will weigh her. Bye.'

    O-M-G! What is this? What does it mean? Why haven't I received a letter? And why is the HV so unhelpful!?

    Clearly I'm now worried and I don't know if I need to be or not?

    Does anyone know anything about HBA? Or what it is?
    Tried Google but I'm on my phone and can't find anything. Plus.. Google is evil :(

    Hi Louise...I'm never one for turning to google as it can be so misleading...but it it does appear to be linked to sickle cell - this link might help:

    http://www.sicklecellsociety.org/resources/view/6

    If I were you, before you do ANYTHING else, call your HV office to see if anyone can shed some light on this for you.
