Heart Abnormalities at Birth (Congenital, Inherited or Injury in the Womb)
Congenital heart disease is where a baby is born with a heart defect which leads to heart disease and other complications. This can be caused by injury to the heart while it is developing in the first 16 weeks after conception. This injury can result from infections such as Rubella (German measles), smoking and alcohol abuse by the mother. If you as a mother are struggling with alcohol or smoking, don’t feel guilty, judged or condemned, turn to the chapter on addictions on page 216 which will help you deal with it.
In the case of injury to the heart from when the baby was developing in the womb, simply ask God to do a creative miracle and restore the part of the heart that has been damaged (I explain more about operating in the gift of miracles on page 123 under the heading “You Can’t Always Do It Alone”). A congenital abnormality in the heart can also be part of the curse of genetically inherited diseases – to understand this you need to read through the chapter on “Genetically Inherited Diseases” on page 153.
