Message length 300 characters recommended

All babies will have a hole in their heart right after birth. It is normal and usually closes within minutes and hours of birth. For some babies this hole will not close. If the hole does not close the doctors can try giving some medication first to see if it closes. If it doesn't close with medication it often has to be closed with surgery.
