Cherubs Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Baby Book is a must have book for all new and expectant Cdh parents! An atypical baby book with typical baby book contents such as handprints, photos, family tree and vaccination record - but also specialized sections for dealing with Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia. Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia is a birth defect that occurs when the diaphragm fails to fully form, allowing abdominal organs into the chest cavity and preventing lung growth. 1 in 2500 babies are diagnosed with Cdh. 50% of babies born with Cdh do not survive. The cause is not known. Cherubs is the world's first, largest and most active Cdh charity, helping families in over 38 countries. This book was created by a combined effort of our members to help new and expectant families diagnosed with Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia.
