Preparing Yourself and Your Child for Hip Dysplasia

Carley’s son had open reduction surgery at 6 months old. She shares her top items to bring to the hospital for surgery, top items to have at home after surgery and my favorite things we used to get through this tough time!

“When I learned about Miles4Hips through a Facebook group, I knew I wanted to help and participate in any way that I could. I reached out and I decided to share a little of our story and some lists of the items we thought worked best for us!”
