We help babies with heart conditions to give them a better start in life

Story

A baby is born with a serious heart condition every two hours in the UK and despite congenital heart disease being one of the biggest killers of infants, only around half of congenital heart defects are picked up during routine prenatal scanning.

With your help we can provide a safety net for the 1,000 babies each year that leave hospital with their heart defect undetected, increasing detection rates, improving a baby’s chances of survival and long-term quality of life.

Our daughter was born with congenital heart disease that was not picked up until after birth during a later visit to the hospital. Although luckily the prognosis looks good for us, better screening could make the world of difference in many other cases and provide for the best possible preparation for both parents and clinicians to support these children.
