Being told your baby has a problem with their heart is both frightening and emotional for parents and their families.

The information given to you at the hospital can be frightening and difficult to understand. Over the following pages we hope to help you understand your baby’s heart problem and explain some of the choices you have been given. If at any time you would like to chat through the information you have been given, do not hesitate in giving the LHM team a ring on 0121 455 8982.

    We are kicking off the week with some feel-good…

    “Tommy is absolutely smashing reception! He struggled to settle into nursery, but he started reception on the 3rd and absolutely loves it. He got a “star of the week” certificate on his first full week and he doesn’t want to come home on an afternoon! Tommy is doing 5 full days and is pre-Fontan, so I was expecting him to struggle, but he’s not ❤”

    Fantastic news sent in by LHM member Beth, mum to Tommy who was born with half a heart. So pleased he is settling in well.

    Parents, remember we have a new teachers pack created to help schools understand the needs of a child with a single ventricle heart. You can find it here: bit.ly/3jqAbpQ or email [email protected] to request a hard copy.
