CMV Action is a nationwide organisation of parents and volunteers, who have come together to raise public awareness of Congenital CMV, and campaign for better prevention measures within our health service. Congenital Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is a common birth disorder which affects around 1 in 150 newborn babies. Although it is a leading cause of lifelong disabilities, very few pregnant women are aware of the risk it poses. We offer advice, support and friendship to anyone affected by Congenital CMV, advocating for families and working with a number of medical professionals who have an interest in this field.

I'd never heard of CMV until he was born. I wish they would test for CMV." Thanks to Mum Sarah Liane Davies for sharing. https://t.co/58ATwlJo39
