Congenital Heart Disease – A Parent-Nurse’s Perspective

When you learn your child has a congenital heart condition, sometimes you need the kind of support that only comes from personal experience. Only other heart parents – the moms and dads of kids with congenital heart problems – know the shock of that first diagnosis, the fear and helplessness you may feel. Their insight can give you strength, peace of mind and guidance on how to provide the best care for your child.

Jennifer Johntony is a heart mom whose son was born with bicuspid aortic valve disease. This experience inspired her to become a nurse with a focus on pediatric cardiac surgery at UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital. Learn more about Jenn’s story, and then contact us to talk to her about your concerns and questions – one heart parent to another.
