Birth Defects

Statistics of Birth Defects

Statistics tell us that about one in every 33 babies is born with a birth defect—which works out to about one such birth every 4.5 minutes. Birth defects account for more than 20 percent of infant deaths, and babies born with birth defects have a greater change of long-term disability and illness than babies born without birth defects.
