What’s Spina Bifida?

Spina Bifida is a major birth defect in which a developing baby’s spinal cord fails to develop properly or close properly while in the womb.

With good quality medical care, people with spina bifida can reach their full potential. If you have spina bifida, or know someone who does, it’s important to get the facts so that you can make the best possible health care choices.
