CHD Treatment: What to think about - 12-22-2009, 11:56 PM

Some people die from severe congenital heart defects or related complications, such as heart failure.

If your baby is born with a severe heart defect, be assured that there is a good chance that he or she will survive with treatment. But you must also prepare for the possibility that your child may die. Talk with your doctor about local resources and organizations that can help you manage the many emotional and practical struggles when faced with this possibility. It may help to talk with other parents who have had children with congenital heart disease.
