CLDF’s Yellow Alert campaign supports, informs and educates parents, carers and health professionals on the signs and symptoms of prolonged jaundice in newborn babies, promoting early diagnosis and appropriate referral for liver disease.
It is not uncommon for new born babies to become jaundiced at birth. Jaundice does not necessarily mean a baby is ill but if it does not disappear normally - usually at around two to three weeks old - it should be investigated.
Further information for parents and carers is available on CLDF’s dedicated Yellow Alert website.
CLDF is passionate about raising awareness of paediatric liver disease and has developed a suite of valuable tools for midwives and health visitors, as well as other healthcare professionals.
