The purpose of this study was to examine midwives' knowledge of the techniques and devices involved with feeding infants with cleft lip and/or palate (CL/P). More specifically, this study examined whether midwives in rural communities, urban communities, or suburban communities were more knowledgeable of the techniques used with infants with CL/P. A quantitative method of survey research was used to conduct this study. To access the sample, midwives were contacted by email and invited to participate in the study by completing an online survey. The results of this study showed that midwives lacked knowledge of the techniques and devices used to feed infants with CL/P.
