Healthy Pregnancy: What You Can Do to Help Prevent Birth Defects

National Birth Defects Prevention Month

Every four and a half minutes, a baby in the United States is born with a birth defect. Birth defects are very common and range from mild to severe. Although the cause of all birth defects is not known, they are most often linked to a variety of environmental and genetic factors. While some birth defects are genetic and cannot be prevented, it is always in your best interest to educate yourself about the risks and take as many precautions as possible to protect your child.
