Cleft Lip and Palate News Thoughts

Aotearoa Cleft Awareness Week 2022

Mon 31 Oct - Sun 6 Nov is Cleft Awareness Week in New Zealand. Each day during Cleft Awareness Week, I will share a post, interview or presentation about cleft lip and palate with you to help share some of the lesser known aspects of living with cleft!

Whatever your background, I hope that you find it interesting, and that you learn something about Aotearoa’s most common facial birth difference that affects 1 in 600 people in New Zealand (that’s around three new babies born with cleft every week across the motu).

Make sure to check back here each day or on Twitter for the daily update!
