Most children with a heart condition are born with a congenital heart defect (when their heart didn’t develop normally or completely in the early weeks of pregnancy). So the sooner kids can get diagnosed and treated, if needed, the better.
When little hearts need help and families need hope, Nemours’ experienced, caring pediatric cardiology teams are there.
