At 38 weeks along we received news that confirmed Ledger has a Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH). The best explanation of this condition is that there is a separation in his diaphragm that is allowing his intestines to move up into his chest cavity which affects his heart & lung development. CDH requires immediate medical attention following birth. Due to his diagnosis, we were referred to Children’s Mercy Hospital Fetal Health Clinic where we will deliver him so that he can receive the best care possible.
