Some babies are born with a cleft lip or palate. Cleft means ‘gap’ or separation.

A cleft happens because different areas of the face don’t join together while a baby is developing in the mother’s womb. Surgeons can repair both a cleft lip and palate so that babies can grow
up to live active and fulfilling lives.
