Mum puts swimming down to progress of daughter born with rare heart condition

A mother from Cardiff has praised the benefits of baby swimming after she started taking her two-year-old daughter, who has a rare heart condition.

Martha Graham was born with a very rapid heartbeat - PJRT or Permanent Junctional Reciprocating Tachycardia, meaning in comparison to other babies, her heart beats at double the normal rate.

After spending much of her early life in hospital, by the age of 4 months, Martha was becoming stronger, and after approval was given from her doctors, she and her mum started baby swimming.

Martha's mother Michelle is convinced it has helped yield huge benefits.
