Understanding Your Child's Heart - New BHF CHD Publications

Working closely with paediatric cardiologists, the British Heart Foundation (BHF) has just produced the first six booklets of a new series, Understanding your child's heart, for the parents and families of babies and young children with congenital heart disease.

Each booklet:

Further booklets will become available throughout 2009 and early 2010. For more information on these booklets or the British Heart Foundation, please go to bhf.org.uk
