Military Wife. Mama to Liam + Brynlee. Cleft Advocate.
As a cleft mama, I dedicate a lot of time educating others and raising awareness on cleft lip and palate.
When my husband and I learned my son’s cleft diagnosis we had no idea what to expect. We did so much research but nothing can truly prepare you for this journey.
On my website, you will find different blogs to help prepare yourself and your family. There are a variety of topics such as expecting the arrival of your baby, the NAM and taping process, preparing for surgery, life after surgery, etc.
My main goal is to make sure families never feel alone in their journey. I want to connect, relate and help prepare families as much as possible.
