Her inspiration for this was her own daughter, she told Daily Mail.

”I always wonder what would happen if I was in a car accident with my daughter in the car and I was unable to let the doctors know that my daughter could not have an MRI due to having a cochlear implant,” speaks Natalie of her daughter’s condition.

She expressed her relief that now she does not need to worry about her daughter’s safety in case they were to encounter emergencies on the road. Her first design of the cover had the words ‘I am deaf. No MRI’ on it.

She had also created one for autistic children that read ‘I have autism. I may resist help.’

“This is an amazing idea! As a cop, I wish I could hand these out to anyone who needs them,” reads a comment.

“My husband is part of Fire and Rescue and said that this is a brilliant idea. Such a valuable piece that provides a lot of information clearly so that personnel involved can approach situations with knowledge and care,” wrote a woman.
