    You will see statistics vary on the occurrence of CDH. Here at the charity, we have always used the 1 in every 2,500 babies are born with CDH. I know different surgeons and hospitals will use different stats based on what they have seen over the years.

Ian was born at 36 weeks, spent 53 1/2 days in NICU, 7 days on ECMO, surgery was on day 5, 29 days on a vent, 23 days was an oscillating vent, 546 days on oxygen. Inguinal right and left hernias and undescended left testicle surgeries were done on day 48. Currently has heart related medical issues and exercise induced asthma, but is one happy, happy boy!!
