Be part of our Christmas story

Send in your Christmas photos and videos.

This time each year, we produce a beautiful Christmas video to help CDH families connect, share photos and videos, and raise awareness for congenital diaphragmatic hernia. We invite families who are affected by CDH to join our Christmas tradition and be part of our 2018 story.

Please email photos and videos by 10 December.



We’d love to receive Christmas themed photos. Here are a few ideas:

🌻Your baby bump (expectant parents) with Christmas clothing or decorations

🌻Newborns at Christmas time (including when they were in hospital)

🌻Photos on Santa’s knee or just at home in front of the tree

🌻Your CDH angel’s resting place decorated for Christmas

🌻Placing a gift under the Kmart tree in memory of your CDH’er

🌻Your CDH angel’s Christmas ornament

🌻Anything that includes your CDH’er and Christmas

🌻***Siblings and other family members can also be in the photos of course!

Please email photos by 10 December.




Do your kids love being in front of the camera? Help us introduce the Christmas video this year.

🌻Film the video with your phone in landscape mode (sideways)

🌻Ask your little Christmas stars to say the lines below

Line 1 –   Santa Claus is on his way!

Line 2 –   Wish wish you

Line 3 –   a very Merry Christmas

Line 4 –   and a Happy New Year

Line 5 –   from CDH Australia!

Please email videos by 10 December.


If your video file is too big, please email  and ask for the link to our google drive.

Your images and videos will be used in our 2018 Christmas video which will be uploaded to our YouTube channel, Facebook page and published on our website.

A big thank you to our wonderful volunteer videographer, Tara, for putting together our videos.
