You learn a lot about science as a special needs mom.
This can take many, many forms:
Chemistry - through understanding the combination of drugs you will have to administer to your child.
Biology - an in depth knowledge of how the body works.
Even Physics - from how to position your child to the pressure needed to tube feed.
Some moms will be able to draw on subjects studied at school or college, others may work in the field of science where the terms are familiar but they never thought they would help with caring for their child with special needs.
For others, they are thrown in at the deep end with a crash course to bring them up to speed.
No matter what your background you very quickly become an expert in your child's condition and the care they need as well as gaining a newly developed appreciation of the 'sciences'.
So what better way to celebrate this knowledge than a beautiful piece of science jewellery from Science Jewelry 1824 this Valentine's Day!
Here are Firefly's top picks from the amazing range of science inspired jewellery...

Dopamine Ring - £82.00
Dopamine is a type of neurotransmitter that can be hugely significant in the lives of special needs families. Dopamine can be the cause of learning difficulties for example in the rare genetic condition PKU and cretinism. Dopamine problems are also implicated in ADHD as well as depression. This dopamine ring is the perfect way to demonstrate your tie to this vital neurotransmitter.
Serotonin Necklace - from £84.00
You may not be familiar with serotonin but it is a natural mood stabliser and it can help with sleeping, digestion and eating. Serotonin impacts every part of your body, from your emotions to your motor skills. So it's safe to say we could all do with a bit of serotonin. The serotonin necklace from Science Jewellery 1824 is available in sterling silver, rose gold plated brass and gold plated brass in two necklace lengths 42 and 45cm.
