Support Pages for Carers of DDH Hippy Babies

by Nicola - 23:06 on 27 April 2017

When your baby is diagnosed with hip dysplasia it can be a worrying time and it can be invaluable to find others in the same situation as you for advice and support. Here are some groups I have found useful, I hope they help you too.


My Hippy Baby UK & Ireland (DDH, Hip Dysplasia, Clicky Hips)

Is a support group aimed at families of hippy babies living in the UK and Ireland.

Karen has 2 'survival packs' available free (run on a no obligation donation scheme and fundraising), Pavlik or Spica packs. They contain information sheets, tips and advice from parents from the group and a few other useful items.

A charity with the aim of helping those on their journey both in the UK and around the world. It is a kind, safe, caring community and if they can help they will, if they can't they have various experts there, and offline, who have a wealth of knowledge.
