Caring for the tiniest hearts.

Not Your Fault

Congenital heart disease is caused by defects in the growth of your baby’s heart, which began growing at conception and was completely formed at eight weeks. For about nine of every 1,000 infants, the heart develops with some problems, but it’s important for parents to understand they did nothing wrong. Sometimes the heart simply doesn’t grow correctly.

There are many kinds of congenital heart defects, but most involve a structural problem such as a hole or leaky valve, and range from simple to complex. Your baby may grow out of some of the simpler heart problems, while others need to be watched by your baby’s doctor and managed with medicines. Others will require surgery, sometimes as soon as in the first few hours after birth.
