New Parents

Congratulations on the birth of your baby!

Becoming a new parent is both one of the most wonderful and challenging times of your life. The Microtia UK New Parents Guide has been developed to help you during those early years to understand more about Microtia

I have just read the New Parents Guide and it is absolutely amazing! I nearly cried while I read it, as it reminded me of the fact that I had no help or advice when my son was born just over 8 years ago and there were definitely no information booklets available! It has everything about Microtia in it and answers many questions that parents may have. It is a great tool to use to show health visitors, doctors, GP’s……when trying to explain what Microtia is at different appointments. The ‘Telling Others’ page has helped me a lot as I found it hard to tell others about my sons Microtia when he was born, even hiding it from Facebook for 2 months and from extended family as I struggled to bond with him for the first few months. The booklet is truly amazing and so are the elephants, wristbands, bags etc. in the shop. Thank you so much! I’m so happy that this charity exists and that there are people out there to support each other when there child is born with Microtia.
