Cleft Lip & Palate + support

  1. Hi,
    I'm trying desperately to find info on Cleft Lip & Palate. I'm looking for anyone who has info on post operative nutrition relating to clefts. I was born with a cleft myself but I was fairly young when I had most of my operations. Also, I'm looking for the info for one of my course assignments.
    ALSO I'm looking for anyone who would be able to talk about or send me something about a story regarding support. The other paper I'm writing is for my Development course and I've chosen to talk about the benefits of knowing someone who has the same condition. For example, when I was 14 I met a girl who has a cleft like me and we've made a world of a difference to each other. However, I'm finding it hard to find other examples of similar situations...
    If anyone could help me it would really be amazing!
    ps this is also the first message I've posted so sorry if I've done it wrong!
