Please remember that information obtained from websites, though in itself accurate, may not be applicable to you and your pregnancy.

If you need more information on conditions that may affect your baby; your first point of call is your obstetrician or midwife. You may be referred to a fetal specialist or genetic counsellor, who can also give you valuable information. This page has links to reliable websites with good information. Always treat the information given on websites as provisional, and confirm the information with your obstetrician, midwife or other professional. In other words, treat the medical information from the internet as sources of questions, not sources for answers. 

If you need reliable information, please contact SASUOG, detailing the condition about which you would like more information.
