  1. New Diagnosis

    Hi all,

    We recently found out at the 20 week ultrasound that we are expecting a boy with CDH. This is our second child and our first boy is healthy. It has been a very hard time as I am a neonatologist and have taken care of infants with this difference and seen good and bad outcomes.

    Our son was diagnosed at 20 week US w/ LCDH. I had amnio done and array came back negative.
