Savannah was born October 2010 after a very normal and uneventful pregnancy. Within 24 hours of birth she was diagnosed with a cleft palate, tongue tie and an abnormally small chin. The trio of these birth defects is known as Pierre Robin Sequence. This blog is to show her progress with PRS and to share our surgical and medical experiences.
If your child has PRS I would love to hear from you! Feel free to post your blog (if you have one) address in the comments section so I can follow along with your experiences too!
