Birth defects - Infections

All through pregnancy, a fetus faces the threat of infection from a variety of microorganisms. While some can be fought off by a mother’s healthy immune system, others may result in a miscarriage or a stillbirth. Sometimes, infectious diseases lile rubella and HIV may also cause growth retardation and congenital defects in children.

For more information on birth abnormalities caused by infectious diseases, our support group is where you’ll find it.
