Prayers needed - has anyone been through this?
This story is heart breaking.
A close friend of mine has been trying for a baby with her husband for the last 6 years without success. They decided to go down the IVF route to discover they'd got pregnant naturally. Yesterday they went for the sexing scan to be told they were having a girl and that she has a hernia growing in her chest cavity, squashing her heart and lungs :(
I found this online to describe it medically...
Could you all please please please pray for her baby girl?? Also, if you know anyone who has been through a similar experience please let me know!
CDH is the abbreviated name for Congenital (born with) Diaphragmatic (of the Diaphragm; the musculomembranous partition separating the abdominal and thoracic cavities and functioning in respiration) Hernia (a general term used to describe a bulge or protrusion of an organ through the structure or muscle that usually contains it). Congenital diaphragmatic hernia occurs in 1 in 2000- 5000 births and accounts for 8% of all major congenital defects.
Thanks so much!
