Just in time for cleft lip and palate awareness week 2019 Jenny interviews mum Jenny (of @mamaboost) and her lovely little one Will. Both Jen and Will were born with bilateral cleft lip and palate and Jen was kind enough to explore with us their journey from diagnosis antenatally to his recent surgery. We talk about feeding challenges and different options, Jen's experience of discovering Will would have a cleft, her birth and early days with Will as well as speaking to her again after Will had his surgery. She shares with us some suggestions of where to signpost families for additional support. Thanks very much to Jen for sharing their story... and apologies for the sound quality and little additions to the podcast from the newest member of the team! As ever we would love to hear from you with comments or suggestions to [email protected] Further reading/resources available at the Cleft Lip and Palate Association - https://www.clapa.com/
