Spina Bifida

Hi moms, I was reluctant to share but I definitely need the support ♥️ I have a happy and bubbly 6 month old baby girl. At her 4 month pediatrician appointment, I pointed out that she has what’s called a sacrum dimple. He said it could be an indication that she has spina bifida and now has an MRI scheduled where she will be put under anesthesia. Have any mommies out there gone through anything like this? I’m not sure what to expect 🙁 Thank you 🙏🏼

@Vanessa how did the mri go in the end?

I did, it was negative. They didn’t say anything at the hospital, and they didn’t see it at her first pediatrician appointment :(

I am glad I posted this, I didn’t realize how great the support would feel. Thank you Mommies for the advice, kind words and support. I am wondering why they don’t give her a sleeping medication versus putting her under anesthesia. Do you guys know if there is a risk with sleeping meds in a situation like this where she needs an MRI?

My daughter has one. It was noticed at her first all over check whilst in hospital. They straight away said that it could be spina bifida and got the paediatrician to come down. It was all very shocking and I was on my own as it was at the start of the pandemic and partners weren’t allowed in. Since then when ever I have seen a midwife or dr I have asked for it to be checked. They paediatrician said that as long as they can see the ‘seal’ (back of the dip) then they are happy and that it’s not an issue. But keep an eye on it. I have to clean hers after poops. Try not to panic xx
