Open Spina Bifida


I had my second anatomy scan last week and my doctor said everything looked fine, but he wanted me to do the second genetics testing so I did. Today I got a portion of my results and I have an increased risk 1 out 252 to have a baby born with OSB.

This doesn’t run in neither of our families, in fact my first daughter was born 100% healthy. Anyone have this test done and the baby was born normal? Or what was the outcome? I’ve read that depending on some cases, surgery can treat this, and it can be done after birth or during the actual pregnancy.

I’m hopeful that my baby is healthy but the worry still lies... just need some sort of advice to calm my nerves, I don’t see my dr till Wednesday morning
