2019 In Australia approximately one in 1,200 pregnancies are affected by spina bifida. It affects the development of the spine, the spinal cord and the brain and in about ninety percent of the brain issues cause the development of hydrocephalus. The spinal nerves control muscles and feelings in the lower limbs and therefore people with spina bifida have some degree of paralysis.

Unfortunately, at this stage, there is no cure, because nerve tissue cannot be repaired or replaced. However, research has shown that an expectant mother should take a daily supplement of folic acid one month before conception and three months after. Folic acid is a B vitamin mainly present in green leafy vegetables.
