CDH Sunflower Sunday is our annual awareness day event to support one another and raise the profile of the rare birth condition, congenital diaphragmatic hernia. It’s a beautiful day with one goal: to ensure no family faces CDH alone.

This year, due to the pandemic, we’re unable to host public group events, instead you’re invited to take part from home.

What is congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH)? CDH means being born with a hole in the diaphragm and affects 1 in 2,500 births. This birth condition can affect any pregnancy and has no known cause or cure. This week, 2 families will receive this frightening diagnosis. The fatality rate is 50%. 

Who is CDH Australia? We’re the only Australian charity supporting families affected by CDH. We’re volunteer led and do not receive any ongoing government funding. We rely heavily on the generosity of fundraisers and donors. 


Please reach out, we're here for you.

We support families throughout their CDH journey; expectant parents of a baby diagnosed with CDH, families caring for a CDH child, adults with CDH, and bereaved families. 

Our support service team members are parents with personal experience of CDH who understand the issues families face and will support you with compassion and empathy.
