About CDH Australia

CDH Parents. Whoever you are and whatever the challenges you face with regards to Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia, CDH Australia is here to support you!

CDH Australia is a national health promotion charity for Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH).

Our vision is for no family to face CDH alone and our mission is to improve the lives of those affected by CDH, support and advocate for families, raise awareness and support research.

Support services are delivered by state contacts – parents with personal experience of CDH who understand the issues families face and can support with compassion and empathy.

The support services we offer families include:

  • ‘Expecting a baby with CDH’ booklet
  • telephone and email support – including parent to parent matching enabling families who have experienced similar CDH situations to get in contact and gain support from each other
  • online support via private Facebook groups
  • support resources
  • annual wellness forums and social events
