    Stacey’s Story

    I'm Stacey, and I was born with a unilateral cleft lip and palate. As a young girl, I was confident and happy, but when I got to secondary school, I was bullied about my appearance, and my self-esteem was low.

    Eva’s Story

    In February 2021, we headed off for our 20-week scan. We were so happy to be told we were expecting another girl, but a lot of silence soon followed, and the sonographer said, “I suspect little one may have a cleft lip.”
