Chinese Baby Born With Spina Bifida Seeks Doctors Help

A newborn baby in China named Xiao Wei was born with a tail-like growth due to a medical condition called Spina Bifida. Spina Bifida means his vertebrae didn’t grow properly. It is a disorder in which the spinal column is not fully closed and his spine is still growing.
According to his mother, Chen Wei, surgeons told her if the tail was removed, it will grow back again. So the only solution to her son’s problem is to repair the spinal canal first to stop it from reoccurring in the future.
Advice to All pregnant women: Please use proper prenatal multivitamins to prevent neural tube defects during pregnancy.
