Did You Know? - Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia is a birth defect that affects each baby differently.  Some babies have small holes in their diaphragms or no hole at all, just very loose muscle.  Some babies have large holes or no diaphragm muscle at all.  The organs that migrate into the baby's chest cavity varies.  Some babies have just a little stomach above their diaphragm while overs can have stomach, liver, intestines and other organs migrated.  The amount of organs in the chest cavity controls the impairement of lung growth.

Meet Our Cherubs!  - This is Braden and his big sister Brooke.  They are the worst of enemies and the best of friends.  Braden was born with an undiagnosed congenital diaphragmatic hernia on March 13, 2008.  Within an hour of his birth I was told he would require surgery.  He was taken from me and flown to CHOP where he received great care.  He had his repair surgery the day after his birth and was home twelve days later. Braden's journey continues today as he struggles with weight gain and asthma like symptoms.  Please vote so that all mothers can have the benefit of knowing what they are facing before their child arrives.  CDH babies need special attention at the precise moment of their birth!
