The awareness ribbon for congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is baby blue, pink and pale yellow with clouds. CDH also uses a turquoise awareness ribbon. The international Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Awareness Day April 19th.
Per Wikipedia: “Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is a birth defect of the diaphragm. The most common type of CDH is a Bochdalek hernia; other types include Morgagni hernia, diaphragm eventration and central tendon defects of the diaphragm. Malformation of the diaphragm allows the abdominal organs to push into the chest cavity, hindering proper lung formation.
CDH is a life-threatening pathology in infants and a major cause of death due to two complications: pulmonary hypoplasia and pulmonary hypertension… Newborns with CDH often have severe respiratory distress which can be life-threatening unless treated appropriately.”
