A different life begins for both the individual and his family from the moment of diagnosis of clinically severe diseases such as Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA). Adapting to this new lifestyle, doing what needs to be done effectively, and most importantly, being able to stand strong psychologically, require different periods and stages for each individual. It is very important to provide confidence-building and encouraging psychological support to people struggling with the disease. In addition, psychological support should be provided to the relatives of the patients according to their personality structures and their processes of accepting the disease should be controlled by a specialist. With psychological support, explanatory information given by the doctor and family support, the care and treatment process of the baby can be continued positively.
