Hi, my name is Courtney. I am a new mom of a 7 week old baby, Mya. She is our first child. She was born with a unilateral incomplete cleft lip. We were unaware of her lip untill she was born, so it was a bit of a shock. We wouldn't take her any other way though, shes the best. We were told that we have a 4% chance of our next child having a cleft. I'm just wondering what other parents experiences have been with a second child (cleft or no cleft). It's not a huge concern, and it won't stop us from having another child down the road. But, I am curious.
