by Hallqvist, Carola; Gustavsson, Nina

Abstract (Summary)
The aim of this study was to, from scientific articles, illustrate how parents with children born suffering from cleft lip and palate (CLP) reacted when informed of their childs diagnosis, how they experienced the first time period after the birth and the attitude and support from the caregivers. The 15 scientific articles used were found in Medline. Parents with children with CLP are at first in a vulnerable situation beacuse of their many questions and need of support. The result of this study showed that an important factor for the well-being of the parents was profound information and support from well-educated personnel which not only focused on the malformation of the child but also their health. During the hospitalization the caregivers should observe the possible needs the parents could have and how they could be involved in the care of their own child. Further, the result found that prenatal diagnosis had a positiv affect on the parents experience when having a child with cleft lip and palate. The result also proved that the caregivers attitude and their selection of words towards the parents was very important of how the parents experienced the situation. Another important aspect for the parents experience was the possibilty of contact with psychologist and other parents with children with CLP.
