IS EVERYONE'S BABY AT RISK?

Yes. Spina Bifida can develop:

  • Whatever your age

  • Whether you are a first time mother or not

  • Even if spina bifida does not run in your family

  • If you are in the best of health

  • There is a higher risk if you already have given birth to a baby with this condition or if a close family member has given birth to a child with spina bifida.
