CHD Awareness Week links

It's CHD Awareness week, so as a heart mom, I want to devote one blog post to the cause.

What I thought I'd do is compile a list of places you can look for more information. And some other heart moms you can follow and read to get a more complete snapshot of this issue -- the most common birth defect in America.

A word of warning:

Some of this stuff is sad, sad, sad. Because these babies do not all survive.

This is just the tip of the iceberg, as they say.

  1. Thank you for this great list. I didn't realize there were so many products in support of CHD Awareness.
