It is estimated that between 1 in 6 newborns will have an element of hip instability and 2 to 3 in every 1,000 infants will require treatment. For many, a diagnosis comes out of the blue and despite a family history, this was certainly the case for Devon based Natalie Trice. Her second son, Lucas, was diagnosed at four months old and she was surprised at the lack of support and information available to families. As well as caring for Lucas as he endured endless operations, broken DDH occurs when the hip joint fails to develop correctly bones, and hospital stays, and his brother, Eddie, Natalie decided there had to be a silver lining to the situation and used her PR background and media contacts to put DDH on the map. Seven years later, Lucas’ treatment still isn’t over but significant steps have been made to change what Natalie felt was an unsatisfactory situation and the ripple effect is being felt around the world. Natalie told us, “Whilst DDH isn’t life threatening, being told our baby needed orthopaedic surgery with no guarantee of success, was a massive shock. When I searched for information it was pretty scarce so we muddled through best we could. Each time a new challenge was thrown at us I felt lost and alone and knew that something had to change. As well as media work, I did my research, made contacts with experts and wrote a book proposal that I sent to various publishers. There were rejections and suggestions of self-publishing but I carried on plugging away and one November afternoon, I got the yes I so believed in. Cast Life, A Parent’s Guide to DDH is now selling around the world and it was the catalyst for DDH UK. She added, “As the UK’s only DDH charity we offer support to those dealing with hip dysplasia as well as raising awareness. It is vital that children are diagnosed as early as possible so that treatment can begin and a life of pain, disability and hip replacements can be avoided. We have seen huge growth in the past 16 months and now have a have Medical Advisor on board and Gemma Almond, a Paralympic swimmer with DDH, is our Patron. Plans for 2017 include a fundraising event at Stover School, where Eddie and Lucas are pupils, building links with local hospitals as well as offering more support to parents via our online forum, regional groups and buddy service.” Is the treadmill of your life getting faster?

Winstone's Book Review: Me and Mister P by local author, Maria Farrer Insomnia Headaches Back pain Sciatica Also safe for children Clinics in: Honiton Axminster Charmouth www.hilarysharp.co.uk 0773 863 0186 hilarysharp@btinternet.com Seven years later, Lucas’ treatment still isn’t over but significant steps have been made You know when you've read a truly gorgeous book when it leaves a warm glow of happiness inside you. 'Me and Mister P' by Maria Farrer with illustrations by Daniel Rieley does just that. All Arthur wants is a normal family but no, he's ended up with the brother from Weirdsville. Liam is so embarrassing, but Mum and Dad can't see that and give him all the attention. Leaving Arthur with zero! Zilch! A big fat NOTHING! At the end of his tether Arthur can't see any solutions to his problems and thinks the only way out is to run away. But when he finds an enormous, funny polar bear standing on his door step he finds that life is about to change for the better in the strangest of ways. Prepare to meet MISTER P because there are times when only a polar bear will do. This book is warm and funny in equal spades. Maria captures perfectly the frustration felt by Arthur towards his brother who is different and struggles to fit into a world filled with strange places, loud noises and crowds.

One such parent is Jo Burkill, 34, mum to Georgia who said, "Getting the DDH diagnosis was very much like stumbling into a dark room. I felt very alone until I found the DDH UK support group on Facebook. Meeting mums and adult sufferers in real life was amazing and meant I had people to talk to. DDH UK is the light in the dark and we would be in a very different place right now without them." Natalie further added, “We do not know what the future holds for Lucas but we do know that other people no longer have to feel alone on their journey which is a real breakthrough and all down to his bravery.” As the UK’s only DDH charity we offer support to those dealing with hip dysplasia as well as raising awareness Independent Bookseller of the year Natalie used her PR background and media contacts to put DDH on the map Natalie, who lives in Bishopsteignton, is also a member of the International Advisory Board for the International Hip Dysplasia Institute, and is often seen in the media talking about the subject with passion and professionalism.
