Congenital Heart Defects Stories
You are not alone in carring your child with a congenital heart defect to term. This is what Seamus’s mom said in regards to their adverse prenatal diagnosis of Hypo Plastic Left Heart Syndrome:
“I think one of the scariest times for us was just after Seamus was diagnosed. My husband looked Hypo Plastic Left Heart Syndrome up on the internet. The first article that he read suggested therapeutic abortion or letting the baby die after birth because this heart defect is so severe. Looking back now, I am glad we never even gave that a thought. The medical community is making such huge advances in this area that much of what is found is outdated misinformation.”
