I had one child with clieft lip. What is the chance of having another cleft lip and palate?

Reference quotes 4%: If you haven't done so already it is often helpful to parents to explore the risks associated with pregnancy with their dr or a genetic counselor. The frequency of some unexpected outcome in any pregnancy approaches 4%. A detailed look at the family tree on both sides may help u. Your risk in a 2nd pregnancy would push your risk of a surprise higher than that 4% but the CP risk would stay at 4%.

Cleft lip and palate repair--best at birth or later?

Cleft lip and palate repair--best at birth or later?

Lip by 3 months.: Lip repair is usually done by 3 months old, and palate repair by 10 months before speech begins. The age of lip repair is not critical, and most surgeons do not feel that the risks of early (ie 0-4 weeks old) outweigh the theoretical benefits. So, repair at birth is frowned on by most cleft centers and surgeons.
