I recently had an anencephalic baby in February and am now 5 weeks pregnant again, i'm scared this will happen again. Any advice?

I know Wikipedia is not the most accurate resource, but I did want to quickly look it up to try and reassure you. I am so sorry you have had to go through this :(



It looks like there is about a 3% chance of it happening again, although it looks like this can be reduced significantly by the addition of folic acid to your diet BEFORE you conceive, and during early pregnancy.

Have you talked to your doctor about your fears, and had any advice from him/her?



Hugs to you, and I wish you the best.
