Group Description

This is the newsletter email group of the International Vasa Previa Foundation. Postings to this group are made by moderators only and consist of infrequent newsletter postings or other important IVPF information.

Vasa previa is a rarely (1:2500) reported condition in which a fetal blood vessel from the placenta or umbilical cord crosses the entrance to the birth canal, beneath the baby. The condition has a high fetal mortality rate due to fetal exsanguination resulting from fetal vessels tearing when the membranes rupture or because the vessels become pinched off as they are compressed between the baby and the walls of the birth canal.

There is also an email discussion group available to people who have experienced vasa previa in one way or another. Subscription is possible at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Vasa_Previa
