Spina Bifida Awareness Month -- help spread the word!

Hi all!

I know that some of you will be nearing this stage soon. Please help us as we work to raise awareness for Spina bifida! Please share the message below with others you know that may be ttc or currently pregnant (onsite and off!) We also are very interested in getting YOUR comments on the article to help us learn more about the conversations that our medical caregivers are having with their patients on this topic! Thanks in advance for your help!

As you are trying to conceive or expecting, the topic of birth defects is not one that any of us wishes to think about. Unfortunately, however, it is important to understand! This month, we are focusing on spina bifida and encourage you to take time out to read our article to learn more about the various types, your personal risk factors, prevention steps, and potential treatment options. While we hope that no one ever has a personal need for this information, it is our sincere hope you will join our efforts to raise awareness! Take our challenge! Read the article. Within the comments let us know whether spina bifida is something that your doctor has discussed with you and his/her recommendation (i.e. prenatals, folic acid, testing, etc.) Finally, share the link with three friends (onsite or off!) and encourage them to weigh in as well! Ready? Visit "Types of Spina Bifida" today!
