I am brand new here because I came across this site while doing a goodle search on Gastroschisis. I had an 18 week ultrasound done yesterday and the doctor told me my baby had this. I got so scared when she first started describing it that I sort of went blank and tried to comprehend what she was saying but don't fully understand and the lack of knowledge is scaring me. How do I deliver? WIll this close on its own before baby is born? Is my baby going to be ok? I am so worried. Can any mothers with babies born with this condition please give me some insight on what happens during/after birth and onward? Any advice is GREATLY APPRECIATED! Thank You.
