Information for Healthcare Professionals

The Spina Bifida Association (SBA) has collaborated with experts from across the U.S. to create educational materials for new and expectant parents who have received the Spina Bifida diagnosis.

We recognize how critical it is for parents to understand the diagnosis and make informed decisions, and we want parents across the country to receive consistent and accurate, quality educational materials.

SBA is pleased to offer A Guide to Spina Bifida for Expectant and New Parent.

SBA continues to develop materials for expectant parents including:

  • Care plans for fetal surgery, postnatal surgery, and other options.
  • What to expect in the NICU.
  • NICU discharge checklist.
  • Important information for a healthy start.

We will be providing digital downloads to additional information as it becomes available.
