Natalie Trice is a UK based mother of two sons and the founder of DDH UK, the UK’s only DDH dedicated charity.
Natalie’s sister and two cousins were born with DDH and her second son, Lucas was diagnosed at nearly five months.
Natalie was amazed at the little support that was available for her and her family and set up Spica Warrior in 2015 which is now DDH UK, a charitable trust and support network.
The same year Natalie published her first book, Cast Life – A Parent’s Guide to DDH and as a member of the International Advisory Board for the International Hip Dysplasia Institute, she is often seen in the media talking about the subject with passion and professionalism.
