My 11 month old Daughter has been diagnosed last month with Mild CP following a HIE incident at birth. We are based in Scotland so would be interested in hearing from other Scottish (location) people on tje forum who might be able to give me an insight on their experiences with / as an infant with CP in Scotland.

    @Auchie07 Hello and welcome to our online community. How have you and your little girl been getting on? Is she about 15 months old now? I hope you're both doing well.

    I'm sorry your initial post didn't get many replies, have you managed to speak with anyone more local to you about their experiences of Cerebral Palsy as a child? It could be worth looking at Cerebral Palsy Scotland's website if you haven't already, as they have an online support group and opportunities to get involved and speak with other caregivers. 

    If there is anything in-particular you want to learn about, or anything that is troubling you, please let us know. Our CP Specialist Information Officer @Richard_Scope is always happy to help and we are here to support you all we can.

    Take care and hopefully speak again soon.
