Hi everyone, this time I’m reviewing two books that were written by authors in England.

The first book is Cast Life: A Parent’s Guide to DDH, which was written by Natalie Trice about her experiences when her son was diagnosed and treated for hip dysplasia. Natalie Trice is a member of the IHDI Advisory Committee and she founded the nonprofit organization DDH UK http://ddh-uk.org/.

Cast Life: A Parent’s Guide to DDH
by Natalie Trice

Cast Life combines a thoughtful explanation of hip dysplasia with the author’s personal experience. Author Natalie Trice provides an in-depth discussion about hip dysplasia in childhood. She shares her personal experiences as a parent of a young child whose treatment included surgery and a spica cast as well as the experiences of other parents. I’d recommend this book as a resource for families with a child who has hip dysplasia.

Cast Life is available through most online booksellers, and you can order a copy at many brick and mortar bookstores.

The next book I’m reviewing is The Happy Hips Guide to Teen & Young Adult Hip Dysplasia by Hannah Purdy. This book was written by a teen with hip dysplasia as a resource for other teens.
