Pierre Robin Network was formed in May of 1999 by the mother of a son with PRS.
Our organization is made up of parents, relatives, caregivers, adults with PRS
and professionals who have an interest in PRS.
Our purpose is to network families and individuals with PRS and provide
information to anyone who has an interest. Parents and caregivers do not need to
feel alone, having a child with PRS can be overwhelming. There are many issues
associated with PRS, which are unique to PRS. We do not give medical advice, we
leave those issues up to you and your child's doctors.
Pierre Robin Sequence (PRS) is the name given to a combination of birth defects
which usually include a small lower jaw, cleft palate and a tendency for the
tongue to "ball up" in the back of the mouth. Many of these children have
breathing and feeding problems early in their lives. Each child can be affected
differently and will react different to different situations.
We are here, as parents to educate, listen and help. Networking can help you
accept the condition, learn about it, make your life and your child's life more
comfortable. Our information comes from a variety of sources, but mostly our own
