“From birth, throughout life, this Group supports, inspires and makes such a difference to the children and families affected by Erb’s palsy and works tirelessly educating the obstetric profession on good practices to prevent avoidable injury.”


The group is the one place to go when you don’t know where else to turn.

You know people here ‘get it’ when other people just don’t, no matter how hard they try.

It gives you hope to see others and help to deal with the questions, the many many questions!!



Talking to other people with the same arm as me made me feel totally normal.

I always thought that I was a bit different and told myself that I couldn’t do certain things despite my family telling me I could do anything- the group really made me realise that I can do anything!! (Apart from like, walking on my hands or something. Haha) x


“The support given is invaluable – I don’t know how we would have got through the unknowing nightmare that seemed to be in front of us. Seven years down the line and the support is still ongoing.”


“From a relatively new member of the group.. when I first found this group I was deeply upset and trying to come to terms with the unknown. They have not only taught me so much about Erb’s palsy but also given me so much more hope and the strength I needed for my daughter! I don’t know where I would be mentally and emotionally if it wasn’t for the Erb’s Palsy Group”


Amazing support group couldn’t have made me feel anymore welcome.

At a time I was at my lowest needing answers over what had happened to my boy, this group made me realise I wasn’t alone.

The support, knowledge and advice has been crucial in getting through these last few years and I’ll never forget how instantly better I felt after speaking to them
