Newly Diagnosed?


It’s going to be OK – you are not alone!

If you are an expectant parent who has been told that your pregnancy is affected by Spina Bifida, we can help you find resources or connect you to people who can share their experience and expertise.

If you are a parent of a young child or an adult who has just been diagnosed with Spina Bifida, we have information and resources available for you.

We know that you are searching for information to help you understand more about your unanticipated diagnosis, and we want you to start in the right place.

Our national resource center is a hotline where you can ask questions and get referrals for yourself, your child, or to prepare for your baby’s arrival.

A list of providers and clinics in each state is provided. If you don’t find the information you need here, call the national resource center or your local office.
