About CDH Australia
CDH Australia is a national organisation that provides support for families, friends and medical professionals affected by congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH). We are a registered health promotion charity with deductible gift recipient (DGR) status and are governed by a board of directors.
We support families expecting a baby diagnosed with CDH, families caring for a child with CDH, adults with CDH and bereaved families.
We seek to minimise the social and mental health impacts
for affected families.
Our vision is for no family to face congenital diaphragmatic
hernia (CDH) alone.
To improve the lives of those affected by congenital
diaphragmatic hernia (CDH), support and advocate for
families, raise awareness and support research.
What we offer families
We offer families support in a number of ways including:
- telephone and email support
- information booklets
- online forums
- parent-to-parent matching
- annual forum held in October.
We encourage everyone dealing with CDH and its many aspects to become a part of our community and access valuable peer support and information. We facilitate this support online through our website, Facebook or by telephone on 1800 149 562.
