Gastroschisis Awareness Wristbands

Raise Awareness of Gastroschisis with Custom Wristbands

Birth defects, such as gastroschisis, are more common than many people may think, and can be devastating for a family. When studying birth defects, doctors and scientists focus on finding ways to prevent birth defects as much as discovering ways to treat them. Custom gastroschisis awareness wristbands can be used to both raise awareness for gastroschisis as well as raise money for more research or family support. "Gastroschisis Awareness" or "Save Babies with Gastroschisis" can help start conversations about this important topic, which will lead to more funding and research.

What is Gastroschisis?

Gastroschisis is a birth defect of the abdominal wall. A baby with gastroschisis will have a hole beside the belly button where his or her intestines, and sometimes other organs, will stick outside of the baby's body. Here are some important facts about gastroschisis:

  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that about 1,871 babies are born each year in the United States with gastroschisis.
  • Gastroschisis occurs early during pregnancy when the muscles that make up the baby's abdominal wall do not form correctly.
  • Because the intestines are not covered in a protective sac and are exposed to the amniotic fluid, the bowel can become irritated, causing it to shorten, twist, or swell.
  • Soon after the baby is born, surgery will be needed to place the abdominal organs inside the baby's body and repair the abdominal wall.
  • Even after the repair, infants with gastroschisis can have problems with feeding, digestion of food, and absorption of nutrients.
