Hope the Hip Hippo -a story about Hip Dysplasia in Children by Gina Jay & Julie Beattie To all the children who have embarked on a journey with hip dysplasia, we hope that you will be able to spread your wings far and wide, and soar farther then you ever imagined.

GINA JAY & JULIE BEATTIE
We are two mothers, from two different countries with two beautiful children both diagnosed with Bilateral Hip Dysplasia. When our children were first diagnosed we both independently searched for a story to help explain and understand ourselves, a little of what was going to happen to them. Nothing being found we have embarked on this journey to create a book for you; in hopes it takes a little of the “scary” out of what they and you may endure.
From a mothers heart; to your baby.
