Babies affected by trauma or physical suffering during the first months of their life presents also risk of developing weak heart. A study led by the Georgia Regents University has defined these medical difficulties as neonatal stress. These kinds of heart diseases can be pathological or due to malformations. In all cases, treatments are very expensive. The affected heart can not properly pump the blood, neither incoming nor outgoing. Growing up, children could develop cardiovascular problems that can have serious implications in their adult health.
