congenital heart symptoms


Parents of children with congenital heart defects often worry about the risks of rough play and vigorous activity even after successful treatment. Although some children may need to limit the amount or type of exercise, many can lead normal or near-normal lives. Your doctor can advise you about which activities are safe for your child. If some activities pose special dangers, encourage your child in other pursuits instead of focusing on what he or she cannot do. Although every circumstance is different, remember that many children with ventricular septal defects grow up to lead healthy, productive lives.

It may also be helpful to join a support group for families of children born with heart defects. Support groups can offer practical advice and useful resources to help parents, families, and caregivers find answers, connect with other families, and share their hopes and concerns with others facing similar challenges.
