    My son was born with a very mild case of hypospadias…his urethra is located where it should be but the foreskin was fused on one side and under-developed on the other. His penis also curved sharply to one side so the muscles along one side were snipped so it hangs more straight now. He had corrective surgery done at 5 months old and it healed…[Read more]

    This board is fairly quiet, if you look for the Ventriculomegaly board, there are hydro mums on there too.

    I’m just wondering if anyone here knows if aquired hydrocephalus can be caused as a result of childbirth. I suppose the correct question is can a prolonged labour cause a baby to have a bleed on the brain, as it’s the bleed on his brain that caused my son’s hydrocephalus. Doesn’t matter how old this post is when you read it, any input would be…[Read more]

    My nephew has this and his mom has been in the hospital for 6 days with low amniotic fluid and he is not growing. He is 31 weeks in utero but the size of a 27 weeker. Is that normal for a baby with gastroschisis?

  • I was born with a cleft lip and palate and feared that my baby might be born with it too because I heard it was genetic. But after speaking to my brother today who is an MD I found out that clefts being hereditary is only a theory and that its not true. He says the congenital birth defects have no real way of being inherited and if it happens to…[Read more]

    My son has a large one at the back of his neck into his hair line ( just like mine) I still have it so I assume he will to but he also has it on his eyelids and between his eyebrow LOL nice to know this ones on his face will probably fade in time

  • i-am-pregnant replied to the topic Stork-Bites in the forum Birth Forum 3 years, 4 months ago

    My 2 year old son had a tiny stork bite on his eyelid for a long time it went just after his first birthday. He still has it on the back of his neck under his hairline. They are cute. No problem with them, we thought it was just because of how I pushed him out until I came across this just now….
