FAQ



Cleft lip occurs when the tissue of the upper lip fails to fuse properly when a baby is in utero. Doctors agree there is no one specific thing that causes cleft lip in babies, but many risk factors have been identified. Most researchers believe that a combination of these risk factors is mostly likely to trigger clefting.

What are 10 of the most likely risk factors connected with cleft palate?

Genetics

Most cases of cleft lip have a genetic factor present. A relative might have had the abnormality, so the baby is more likely to have it.

Gender

Researchers have discovered a connection between a baby’s gender and the likelihood of cleft lip. Male babies are more likely to develop the abnormality, with or without cleft palate. Female babies are more likely to have cleft palate alone.

Race

Asian and Native American babies are more likely to have cleft lip. Black babies are the least likely. Keep in mind cleft lip can occur in any race, but certain ones have a higher incidence.

Weight of Mother

Some research shows a baby is more likely to develop cleft lip if his or her mother is obese during pregnancy.

Exposure to Chemicals

Exposure to some chemicals could trigger cleft lip.

Prescription Drugs

Mothers taking certain doctor approved medications during pregnancy seem to have a higher incidence of giving birth to babies with cleft lip. There is no definitive proof any medications cause cleft lip, but it is important you discuss risk factors with your doctor before taking any medicine while pregnant. This is especially true if someone in your family was born with cleft lip.

Illicit Drugs

Hard drug users tend to give birth to more babies with cleft lip.

Smoking

Smoking cigarettes during pregnancy seems to increase the risk of giving birth to a baby with cleft lip.

Alcohol

Cleft lip and fetal alcohol syndrome are often associated with one another.

Other Syndromes

There are other instances, too, in which the genetic factors passed to the baby that cause syndromes also tend to include the genetic marker for cleft lip.

Cleft lip is considered unpreventable, but it is possible to reduce your baby’s risk for having it. If you are pregnant or you intend to become pregnant, it is important you discuss with your doctor your baby’s risk for developing cleft lip and other abnormalities. This is especially true if genetic factors could be an issue for your child.
