CMV is a real risk to pregnant women!

Only 14% of women have heard of CMV. More children have disabilities due to congenital CMV (cytomegalovirus) than other well-known infections and syndromes, including Down Syndrome, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, Spina Bifida, and Pediatric HIV/AIDS. A 2008 study of women in the United States found that only 14% had heard of CMV. An earlier study in 2006 found that 22% of women in the United States had heard of CMV, compared with 97% who had heard of Down Syndrome and 98% who had heard of HIV/AIDS. CMV prevention and treatment during pregnancy can prevent birth defects and developmental disabilities.
