His mother Esther had a smooth pregnancy, but at the end of the pregnancy Luca's heart beat was on the low side.
Luca's birth weight was 2954 gram and his length was 49 cm.
Within a few days after his birth, it became clear that Luca had a serious congenital heart defect.
A pacemaker was implanted at the age of ten days old.
Furthermore, medication propanolol was given to support his heart.

Emma was born on Januari 1st, 2015. She had a serious congenital heart defect.
A reveil hartmonitor was implanted at the age of two weeks old.
Emma is deceased on October 6, 2015 at an age of nine months old.
The suspected diagnosis is a progressive form of non-compaction cardiomyopathy.
This diagnosis could not be confirmed via DNA analysis to gene defects that are correlated with noncompaction cardiomyopathy.
Therefore, the root cause of his heart defect is never found.
