Different types of congenital heart defects

There are many different types and combinations of congenital heart defects. Whatever your baby has been diagnosed with, your medical team will be able to offer you tailored advice based on the individual needs of your baby.

For many babies diagnosed with a heart defect, their condition is a minor problem which either doesn’t need any treatment or can be successfully corrected with surgery. Other conditions are more serious. Thanks to advances in early detection and treatment, most babies will be given a fighting chance to beat their condition.
