Today it's been 5 years since my son Matthew's A.V. Canal repair. I remember the nurses: Shannon, Jaime, and Patrick....They were so good with Matthew and with my husband and I.
If it wasn't for Children's Hospital and the Cardiac wing he wouldn't be here. Thank you all for what you have done for us and giving him a chance to grow in front of our eyes! Thank you Dr. Mah, Dr. Baird, and Dr. de Ferranti we owe you the world.
5 years ago today, I placed my one week old son in Dr. Emani's hands to repair his COA. I remember it like it was yesterday, and I'm thankful every day for the care we received at the Heart Center at Boston Children's Hospital.
1 year ago today Dr Baird performed open heart surgery on Cayman. It did NOT slow him down. Today his heart is as good as new and he barely even has a scar. Thank you Dr Baird and everyone on the cardiac floor at Boston Children's Hospital.
Two years ago today we were at Boston Children's Hospital and our daughter, Emily, was having an aortic stent placed. We were told it would have to be replaced by the time she turned 2 (which was last June) but its still in place and working beautifully. We thank God every day for the amazing work of Dr. Gerald Marx and Dr. James Lock.
This weekend we celebrated our beautiful daughter, Mikayla's 1st birthday and that’s thanks to the amazing surgeons and staff on the 8th floor!! Mikayla was born with a rare diagnosis of Pentalogy of Cantrell which included several heart defects.

We understand that facing a suspected or confirmed diagnosis of your unborn baby’s heart condition can be very frightening. The good news is that advances in prenatal diagnosis and ultrasound-guided surgical and catheterization techniques have made fetal therapy possible. While our Heart center is known for its science-driven approach, we specialize in innovative and family-centered care that can help you through this difficult process.
Our team in the Fetal Cardiology Program at Boston Children's Hospital has the expertise and experience to help you through this difficult time. When you come to Boston Children’s, you will be seen by a team of physicians, nurses and other specialists who have experience with the many problems that can affect infants before birth and who understand how this can impact your whole family.
From the moment you step into our clinic to the day of delivery, we’ll do everything we can to make sure that you and your baby receive the best possible care. Our services include:
We stay in close and frequent contact with your obstetrician to plan the best delivery options and subsequent care for your baby.
We always consider two courses of action. One is fetal therapy, which is performing heart interventions before a baby is born. The second is therapy after birth, which typically occurs within 24 to 48 hours after a baby is born.
Why Choose Boston Children's?
The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
