"DDH is one of the most common congenital abnormalities and it is remarkable that there is so little information out there. This book is essential reading for parents, and indeed healthcare workers, who are involved in the care of children who have the condition and I would love to see it in clinics around the world." Professor N. M. P. Clarke ChM, DM, FRCS, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
About the Author
Natalie is a freelance writer and blogger who spent the first 15 years of her career as a PR consultant for brands including Cartoon Network, Crowne Plaza, Discovery Channel and T.M.Lewin. In 2013, after a career change to writing, she published an E-book, 'Press Release Writing - An Art Not Rocket Science'. As well as a regular column for Families Magazine, Natalie also writes about DDH, parenting and lifestyle topics for various publications, websites and on her growing lifestyle blog (www.justbecauseilove.co.uk). Natalie lives in Buckinghamshire with her husband and two young sons, Eddie and Lucas. Lucas was born with DDH and spent nearly 18 months in various casts and splints after a late diagnosis at five months, an all too frequent occurrence with this condition. Lucas is now six and faces yet more surgery for DDH in the coming months. As well as publishing Cast Life, Natalie has also set up a UK based charity, Spica Warrior (www.spicawarrior.org), aimed at raising awareness of DDH and helping others who are on their journey. Due to her brilliant work on raising awareness of DDH, Natalie has recently been appointed a member of the International Advisory Board for the International Hip Dysplasia Institute.
