Your Cleft-Affected Child: The Complete Book of Information, Resources, and Hope

Clefting is one of the most common birth defects and one of the most reparable. Yet parents of clefted newborns often initially respond with fear, shock, and despair. This first guide written specifically for parents explains what a cleft is, why it occurs, and what can be done about it. Topics include surgical procedures, financial assistance, emotional impact, and forming support groups.
