In 2020, my husband and I were blessed with a strong little boy. He was born with a congenital heart defect called Transposition of the Great Arteries (TGA). After going through pregnancy in the middle of a worldwide pandemic, getting through our son's surgery, recovery, and our postpartum journey, I felt called to share our story with the world. My prayer is that this platform will bring awareness to how common congenital heart defects can be. However, even more than that, I want to be a resource for other heart parents who need support in any form. I want this space to be a place where heart parents and their families can come to feel recognized, supported, and loved. In Heart Like A Mother you'll find a blog, online community for heart families, and small shop that gives back.
Sharing our family's journey with CHD helped me to continue healing. But more than that, I am here to be an advocate and friend. If you have a CHD story you want to share, need informational resources sent to you, or simply need encouragement during a difficult time, please reach out privately below.
