Welcome to Hannah's Plagiocephaly page! This site was designed to chronicle our family's experience with Positional Plagiocephaly. Our daughter Hannah wore 3 DOCbands to correct her very severe plagiocephaly, and despite all the roadblocks along the way, we're very happy with our experience. Follow along our journey in getting her diagnosed, treated, fighting our insurance, and then being faced with possible regression and doing it all over again!
Did you know that since the start of the Back to Sleep Campaign in 1992, the incidence of Plagiocephaly has increased from 1 in 300 to 1 in 50? Please share Hannah's story with others and help me on my quest to raise awareness!
Feel free to email me if you'd like to know more and if you're a plagio parent, definitely join the Yahoo! Plagio Group! It's an invaluable resource!
