More needs to be done to battle heart defects at birth and prevent babies from dying young, a health charity has said.
The BHF has launched a campaign to raise awareness for the 70,000 children living in the UK with heart defects.
Professor Peter Weissberg, medical director at the BHF explained:
The fact 70,000 children are living with heart defects shows that heart disease is not just a problem for adults.
Our research is beginning to unravel how some of these defects occur. But there's still a long way to go. Families need our support in other ways too, to help them understand and come to terms with what's happening to their child.
