About 1 in every 125 babies born has congenital heart disease (CHD). Many of these are not known prior to birth and some are not known until later in life, sometimes, only after a tragedy has happened. The problem is that you can't just look at a baby and know if they have congenital heart disease.
Today there will be a free webinar to talk about how pulse oximetry screening can be helpful in finding babies who have congenital heart disease at birth. It starts at 3:30 p.m. ET and is designed for moms, dads, and birth professionals who want to learn more about Pulse Ox testing. It's hosted by Cora's Story and James's Project. Register here.
February 7-14 is Congenital Heart Disease Awareness Week, won't you honor CHD babies everywhere by learning about what this is and what you can do to help protect little ones?
