Be CHD Aware
Don’t think it can’t happen to you. 85-90% of congenital heart defect cases have no known causes. No known causes! Roy and I do not have any CHD history on either side of the family. We are both healthy adults. Neither of us smoked, drank or did drugs prior to or during pregnancy. Bottom line: we did nothing to cause this and there is no way we we could have avoided it. This is why it is important that everyone is CHD Aware. Please see the picture below for 5 important heart questions to ask at your 20 week ultrasound.
