  • Cleft lip is a treatable birth defect that occurs when the tissues of the upper jaw and nose do not join as expected during fetal development, resulting in a split (cleft) in the lip. A cleft lip generally does not cause health problems. Occasionally, some infants with cleft lip have difficulty feeding.

  • Normally a cleft lip is associated with other birth defects. The cleft lip itself is not a health problem but it is normally the other birth defects such as heart issues that are life threatening.

  • I have two daughter's who were born with a cleft pallet. Cleft lip is when the lips of the baby are not developed - It can range from okay to very server - If you want to chat - e-mail me. Are you expected a baby with this birth defect? It is not the end of the world. Hang in there... Take Care
