DESCRIPTION

Are you aware that cytomegalovirus (CMV), a TORCH infection, is one of the most common congenital infections and affects 0.3%–2.4% of live births in developed countries1? Understanding TORCH infections before and throughout pregnancy can lead to healthier outcomes for mothers and babies.

Learn about TORCH infections from the perspective of both a physician and a parent who experienced congenital infection during pregnancy. This webinar will provide information to understand TORCH infections and testing for optimal outcomes and provide a personal story to understand the impact of a prenatal TORCH infection.

What you will learn -

  • TORCH infections and proper testing for optimal outcomes
  • The current guidelines for TORCH testing
  • The impact from a parent who experienced a congenital infection
