Cardiac (Heart Related) Birth Defect
(In Utero ONLY)
In-utero cardiac-related birth defects refer to abnormalities in the heart or blood vessels that occur during fetal development. These defects can range from mild to severe and can affect blood flow in the body. Potential causes of these defects include genetic factors, infections during pregnancy, exposure to certain medications or chemicals, and poor maternal nutrition. Risk factors for these defects include maternal age, certain medical conditions such as diabetes or obesity, and a family history of heart defects.
