'I just want to take care of my babies,' says gift of life mum

Mums, and potential mums, are a big focus of our work here at East Timor Hearts Fund. That's because untreated heart disease is especially risky for women of childbearing age, and their unborn babies. When women have heart valve damage caused by mitral stenosis their hearts are often not strong enough to withstand pregnancy and labour. Tragically mums and babies can be lost. By providing heart surgery for young women from Timor-Leste we can help save two lives.
This Mother’s Day why not skip the slippers and chocolates and give your mum a gift with real heart. The gift of life. You can make a secure online donation here (and you can even download a gift certificate to print and personalise for mum here).
