CDH means being born with a hole in the diaphragm, and affects 1 in 2,500 births.
This week, 2 families will receive a CDH diagnosis for their child, either during pregnancy, or at birth. The fatality rate is 50%. Families are shattered by the loss of their child. CDH survivors face ongoing health complications. Emotional support is vital.
For a family receiving a CDH diagnosis, fear and anxiety can be overwhelming. CDH Australia provides education, support and a community to share knowledge and experience.
CDH Australia is the only Australian charity dedicated to supporting children and families affected by the rare birth condition, congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH).
Please make a donation to support CDH Australia in their vision for no family to face CDH alone.
Let’s conquer CDH together!
Thanks for your help!
