Message length 300 characters recommended

There are many conditions that can cause a heart murmur. Most causes are benign and won't cause harm to your child. Your pediatrician will evaluate the murmur and determine the cause and if any treatment is needed. Some heart murmurs are serious and caused by a hole in the heart of a leaking valve. In those cases they often require surgical treatment to correct it. If your doctor diagnoses your baby with a heart murmur please ask questions, make sure to ask enough questions so you understand what is going on and are comfortable with all of it.
