New diagnosis

Congratulations on your new arrival!

We understand that a diagnosis of cystic fibrosis (CF) can be very difficult, and there's a lot for you and your family to think about. We are here to help.

In this short film, a mother of a baby who has just been diagnosed with cystic fibrosis gets some reassurance from other parents who have first hand experience. 

If you would like to talk to someone, call our helpline on 0300 373 1000 or send an email and talk to our trained staff, whatever your question or concern.

New parent pack

We have worked with a number of parents of children with CF to produce an information pack for you. This contains a booklet about CF and how some families have found it affected their lives. Through sharing their stories with you, both in the booklet and the film, we hope it may help you cope with the diagnosis and look ahead to your new family life.

If you want to speak to other people who are experiencing a diagnosis of cystic fibrosis, and share tips, support and advice, check out our Forum. You will need to sign up to access the Forum.

You may find it helpful to speak with other parents who have been through a similar experience. CF Connect can put you in touch with a trained parent volunteer who you can talk to in confidence. Ask our helpline for details.

The parents' pack, guide for friends and family, and diary of a parent are excellent. I feel they would be a tremendous support for parents of babies newly diagnosed with cystic fibrosis, as they give a very honest and positive view of what is in store.
