In this section you can find out about the experience of having a child with congenital heart disease by seeing and hearing people share their personal stories on film. In partnership with the British Heart Foundation, our researchers travelled all around the UK to talk to the parents of 30 children in their own homes. Find out what people said about issues such as diagnosis, talking to your child, surgery and impact on family. We hope you find the information helpful and reassuring.
