Hey... Im a young excepting mom and plus this is my first child and the doctors told me that my son with have Coarctation of the Aorta. This is alot for me the bare because this is my first and I would of never thought that pregnancy would be this scary. Im 32 weeks pregnant, so Children's Hospital caught on to this early. They have told me that he will go into surgery where they cut him open..... Sounds like alot from a newborn someone so small. I just want a better understanding of what Coarctation of the Aorta really is. And I will like to know if their's any moms that is dealing with this situation right now and what was your child's outcome, if you dont mind sharing. Will my child be okay? Will he be normal like all other kids? Will he be able to plat sports? Will he learn just fine like everybody else? Is he's developing skills going to be normal.
