This site is specifically for parents of kids with clefts being treated at Primary Children's Medical Center in Salt Lake City, Utah, but I hope that there will be information that is helpful to all parents of kids with clefts. If you are just starting to learn about clefts, I would suggest starting with the "General Information" topic and going from there. To find information on a specific doctor or topic, click on one of the links on the right. You can also search the blog using the box below the topic list. If you have information or experiences to share, please leave comments or contact me to do a guest post at Thanks for visiting!

What will the hospital room be like?

Generally each hospital room at PCMC has two beds/cribs separated by a curtain and a shared bathroom. Babies are given a hospital crib with adjustable sides. Some parents have had success asking for an adult-sized bed so they could sleep with their infants, but the general policy is against doing so. With each bed/crib there will be one rocking chair, one fold-out chair (where a parent can sleep), a TV, a phone (which was nice because my cell phone reception was poor), and a sink. Kind of your standard hospital set-up. The bathroom in the room does not have a shower; there is a shared shower on each hall.
