Most children who are found to have heart murmurs have no significant heart disease, and these normal murmurs of childhood are termed "innocent" or benign murmurs.  If a fetal echocardiogram was normal, then it generally rules out serious congenital heart disease, but we can never rule out minor forms of heart disease (small holes, minor valve abnormalities) on a fetal echocardiogram.  As such, getting a check up with a pediatric cardiologist is a good idea.  It is good news that your baby is healthy and growing well.
