Mutations in their chromosomal DNA. Each parent gives chromosomes to the baby, and when they meet sometimes there are doubles of chromosomes, missing chromosomes, or mutated chromosomes which cause abnormalities in the DNA and overall the child.
About half of the population is born with genetic defects....1/3 of us dont know it..
Thalidomide Here is a link: http://www.thalidomide.ca/en/information/brochure2.html I imagine there were others used in ignorace but this is the biggy that had babies born with missing and deformed limbs.
Down syndrome in a baby can be identified with amniocentesis during pregnancy or at birth. See more in related link.
Amniocentesis is a procedure performed on pregnant women to determine possible risk factors with their developing fetus. A long needle is inserted through the abdomen into the uterus, being guided by an ultrasound, that extracts amniotic fluid. This amniotic fluid is then further tested to determine certain risks such as Down syndrome. Although amniocentesis does have it benefits of obtaining this kind of knowledge, it also poses threats to the fetus such as a .8% chance of miscarriage, clubfeet, trauma to the mother, preterm labor and an infection of the uterus.
According to an article published in a Canadian journal, a study in Canada showed that amniocentesis performed between weeks 11 and 13, resulted in 29 out of 4,374 women gave birth to children with clubfeet. Because of this risk, doctors generally try to avoid performing amniocentesis before week 15 of pregnancy.
A safer diagnosis of Down syndrome would be through blood screenings. The mother's blood must be drawn then the sample will be sent to a lab for further testing and possible diagnosis. The first screening is generally done between weeks 11 and 13. A second screening is done between week 15 and 20 of the pregnancy. According to the March of Dimes, karyotyping done through prenatal blood screenings cannot diagnose syndrome of the fetus but they can show whether or not the risk is high or low. Although karyoptying is not as accurate as amniocentesis, it is less invasive and poses no harm to the mother or the fetus.
Most small holes close without treatment. Often, as the child grows, the hole closes or becomes smaller.
a surgery performed to correct one of two birth defects of the abdominal wall: gastroschisis or omphalocele. Depending on the defect treated, the procedure is also known as omphalocele repair/closure or gastroschisis repair/closure
For reasons that are not fully understood, almost all unborn babies settle into a head down position. The fetus is upside down in the uterus, and the head will lead the way during the birth process. Unfortunately, some fetuses do not cooperate.
The four causes of birth defects are body metabolism,function of structure, and heart.
this site here explains in detail and proven fact and studies that it most certainly does not harm you or your unborn child even if high doses of vitamin c have been takin in any stage or trimester of pregnancy it helped me and i had been searching for a very long time to find these facts i had heard so many different claims like it causes miscarriage or birth defects and that woman could use it as a home abortion remedy well those are false claims even the claims of it causing kidney stones or infections are false. vitamin c actually helps heal these problems and makes your pregnancy healthier and helps conception when takin by the father and makes it easier for you to get pregnant!
i hope this helps anyone that needs it. It sure helped me and eased my mind!
I've heard cleft lip is really painful as there is pretty much just an empty spot of the roof of his/her mouth. As kids get used to it, the pain goes away. I suggest that if any of your kids have cleft lip, to let them get stitches.
Menopause is very common at the age of 46. Most of the time, menopause starts in women at the age of 45. However, some women may get early menopause in their 20's.
taking birth control if you may be or are pregnant can and will harm the baby. A friend of mine was pregnant and took a pack of birth control pills to terminate the pregnancy, and it worked. so the answer is yes.

tetralogy of Fallot
See "Tetralogy of Fallot"....while there are more than four separate congenital heart defects present in the world, this particular condition includes four separate conditions that together are called Tetralogy of Fallot.
Atrazine. It has been linked to gastroschisis and kidney damage.
If you have a healthy blood supply, your nails will show a peachy pink. The fingernails can show most of your health problems.
* Discolored nails: Diabetes, stress, allergies and simple illness can cause your nails to appear discolored.
* A greenish nail color, however, can be a sign of infection, either in the nail bed or in your system.
* Bluish nail beds can be a sign of lung problems. This could be emphysema or even asthma (asthma doesn't usually show up in the nails). It can also be a sign of poor circulation. A simple dark blue line in the nail can be a sign of skin cancer.
* Tiny black streaks can indicate a heart problem.
* Reddish-brown spots can indicate a deficiency of folic acid, protein or Vitamin C. * Yellowing nails are early signals of various internal disorders, such as diabetes, respiratory or liver problems.
* White lines in or across the nail can signal general sickness, fever, liver or heart disease, some kidney disorders or, more likely; a lack of iron or zinc in your diet.
When processes are not in full control there will be occaisions when the results fall below the expected minimum standard for the end product. This may be caused by a significant change in one of the atributes to the manufacturing process. It all depends on how amd when all the inputs are controlled.

The scary answer is: we don't know. Every packet of synthetic marijuana is different, but they all contain powerful chemicals that can harm the mother and the baby. Remember, anything you are taking, your baby is taking too.
There also might be the possibility of loosing the baby if you do synthetic weed because fake weed has a purgative effect (it makes you barf a lot). Purgatives (things that make you barf and/or eliminate a lot) can cause spontaneous abortion or premature birth.
There are random birth defects as well as those that are caused by something the mother and even father did before birth. In other words, something that happened during the pregnancy. Remember that the first few weeks are extremely important, and often that is the time where the woman does not even know if she is pregnant yet. A heart is beating by the time she finds out!
Obviously, alcohol and smoking anything can have adverse affects such as fetal alcohol syndrome. But our society and media, bought by the large pharmaceutical companies, keeps most women in the dark about how steroids (aka "birth control") also cause countless birth defects in the first few weeks of pregnancy - especially to male babies in utero..
: http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn7333 : This is the reason that prostate cancer rates have skyrocketed since the pill arrived in 1960. A deformed prostate is not visible at birth, but can still cause prostate cancer in men decades later. these are the fact the the big pharmaceutical companies are desperate to keep women from knowing. They also don't want you to know about the decimated and deformed male fish populations downstream of water treatment plants due to even microscopic amounts of female steroids. : So, steroids like the pill, patches, IUD, and ring can give you breast cancer and your male child prostate cancer - even if you get off them as soon as you know you're pregnant. The sad fact is, it is often too late. The damage has already been done. : http://aje.oxfordjournals.org/cgi/content/abstract/112/1/73
A huge second source of birth defects are all the premature births needlessly caused because of a woman's previous abortion:
And, naturally, children born to early due his or her mother's compromised cervix and/or damaged uterus suffer from any number of birth defects as a result - the most common apparently being cerebral palsy.
These are the facts that big pharma and planned parenthood are doing their level best to keep everyone in the dark about, since these facts would not be good for their profits.
