Inaccurate but entertaining
25 February 2019 | by misssarahcookSee all my reviews

As a parent of a child with both a midline defect (omphalocele) and various heart issues I'm very familiar with what the parents are going through in this episode. Their description of the rough choices is accurate but their depiction of how midline defects and heart issues are handled is not. No wrapping of the organs after birth?! Heart and repair surgery at once?! Never would happen. I am glad this show brought awareness to a fairly rare defect but I do wish they'd named it instead of calling it a "bowel issue". I am pretty sure it's not an omphalocele, it's a similar defect called gastroschistis. I suppose it could be a ruptured o though.
