'CDH very uncommon'
DR HANNAH Shore is a consultant neonatologist at Leeds General Infirmary whose team fought to save Kaiden’s life.
She said: “CDH is where part of the bowel is in a baby’s chest and there is a hole in the diaphragm and organs go to the chest from the abdomen.
“It is either picked up neo-natally or found in later childcare.
“It is very uncommon. If it is in the right-hand side of the body, then the liver can go in to the chest and can be much more in the way of the development of the lungs.

“Really the unfortunate thing is, you don’t know how the baby is going to fare until it is actually born and you get a good look how developed their lungs are and in this case we watched him for a few days after he was born.”
