Intestinal Defects

The digestive system is complicated, and there are many opportunities for a malformation to occur during pregnancy. A common cause of intestinal defects is the abdominal muscles not closing properly, leaving some of the intestines outside of the baby’s body. There are many treatment options available for intestinal birth defects and much research has been conducted as to what causes them.
