I'm new to this site so I dont really know how things work. I'm 17 and even finding out i was pregnant was a shock, but on wednesday me and my boyfriend found out that our baby has a cleft lip and palate on the left side but could also have a cleft lip on the right side too. I'm 21 weeks and 4 days pregnant and it's been a shock, but as we already knew a bit about it as we have friends and family that have had it, so far we're coping ok. I've been told that joining support groups and forums is really helpful as it is good to speak to different people who are going through the same as us. Our families have been really supportive and helpful all the way through the pregnancy and even though a few have them have been upset by it, they're still happy to help whenever we need them. We could basically do with a bit more advice and information about cleft lip and palate and about other parents experiences. We've looked around on the internet a lot but a lot of the sites seem to tell us different things so any information that people can give will be appreciated :) Thanks.
