Amy and Chris's Baby Registry

Arrival Date February 20, 2020

We can not wait to meet our heart warrior Jack. Congenital heart defect (CHD) is one of the most common type of birth defects and occur in 1% of births. He is our 1 in 100. During week 22 of gestation he was diagnosed with critical aortic stenosis, mitral valve stenosis and regurgitation resulting in evolving hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS). The estimated prevalence of HLHS is 1 per 10,000 births. At 23 weeks gestation we underwent a fetal intervention in hopes to save the left side of his heart. He will likely need surgery within the first few days of life. February is heart month and has a week dedicated to CHD awareness, it is also Jack's birth month! While there are many unknowns, what we do know is that Jack has already proven to be a tough little guy, he is so loved!
