hole at base of spine...


Can anyone share their experiences of this in a newborn please and what it meant for your LO? Jack has one and they want to do an ultrasound first thing in the morning. I can't seem to get an explanation of what it might mean or what they will be looking for can anyone help?

My friends little boy had this. The scan showed it was nothing to worry about. Sorry I don't know any details, just wanted to share a positive story! Good luck at the scan x

My friend has this when she was a baby, but it was totally fine and it closed up, she has no problems, I believe in her case they were checking for Spina bifida.
Hope he's ok at his ultra sound. I really think you need to ask them what they are looking for, they should have told you really.
Congrations on your lo! Xxx

My daughter has one. They did the ultrasound and such on it. They're just concerned cuz that's where spina bifida would show if your LO had it. But if you can't see anything, she is likely fine. I was told just to keep an eye on it as she grew, the doctor will watch it too to make sure it grows right with her and isn't causing strain or pain.



It's nothing to worry about.

This, right?
