Keep CalmI’ve had a few days off writing in this blog this week to have at think about the direction in which to take it, and although I have some ideas on this, I would like YOUR feedback to help me make this a valuable resource for parents, health professionals and those born with a cleft lip/palate.

The blog is gaining momentum with visitors from all over the world and it is going to merge into hopefully by the New Year. I would love to make this a great resource with real life interviews, case studies and scenarios, so I’ve put together a short survey and I’d be really grateful if you could take a few minutes to respond to it and tell me what you would like to see in Baby and Cleft/cleft awareness going forward.

To be honest with you all I kind of feel I’ve come as far as I can with my journey from the initial diagnosis, and I’ve accepted that my baby boy Frankie will be born with a cleft lip and possibly palate. I’m now 30 weeks pregnant and on the home straight until he’s here, and I don’t think you guys reading this want to know when I’ve had cramp in my legs, or how much I’m waddling at the moment, or how many times I visit the midwife or hospital.

The link to the survey is Click here to take survey and I’d be really grateful if you could take two minutes to fill it in and tell me what you would like to see on Baby and Cleft/Cleft Awareness going forward. In the meantime I have a few ideas for posts for the blog so I’ll concentrate on those until the survey results are in, and then I’ll share with you all the things that you want to see on the blog the most.

If you want to email me directly I would love you to answer the following questions:

What do you think of the blog?
What ideas do you have for it?
What is good about the blog?
What is bad about the blog?
How would you improve it?
What does it mean for you?

And the biggest question – would you like to be a guest blogger?

Email me directly via, I would love to hear from you!
