Make a short video of yourself  undertaking an activity or sport that makes you breathless and then say 'I'm Breathless 4 Babies to raise CDH awareness' then post your video on social media and our facebook page using all the hashtags

‘Challenging CDH’ Event - a day of education and support

Challenging CDH is the first event of its kind for families and medical professionals affected by Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia.

The day will first and foremost bring families together to offer support, but it is also a day to talk about experiences with medical professionals, to educate each other and to help to improve outcomes for CDH patients and their families and carers. There will also be activities for the children and parents/carers and the opportunity to tell CDH UK how you would like to see future support for families affected by CDH evolve and how CDH UK can develop and improve it's services to reflect this.

This should be a great day for all who attend and we also hope to have some free samples and other items available to purchase on the day. The event is free, but we have to charge for the lunch buffet and refreshments provided on the day. We look forward to welcoming you on the day!

Nearer to the event, a full itinerary will be provided.

Accomodation will be offered at the discounted price of £100 per double room and will be subject to availability.
