  4. How does my birth plan (vaginal or C-section) affect my baby's survival rate?

  5. Will I be able to see or hold my baby after birth?

  6. What testing can be done to make sure that this is a case of isolated CDH and that there are no other anomalies?

  7. What are the odds of having another baby with CDH after this?

  9. How long after I give birth, will I have to wait until I see my baby in the NICU?
