In brief: Surgery
Surgery will be either shortly after birth or later depending on the degree of pulmonary hypertension.
This elevated pressure usually subsides to normal level after 5-7 days.

In brief: Depends
Most diaphragmatic hernias can be observed.
If it is small enought and symptoms are mild enough, treatment usually entails an antacid medication. However, if it is big enough, then surgical repair is usually indicated. This can usually be done laparoscopically with a laparoscopic diaphragmatic hernia repair.
