    Birth defects are abnormalities that occur during fetal development and can affect various parts of the body, such as the brain, heart, limbs, and organs. There are many different causes of birth defects, including:

    Genetic factors:

    Some birth defects are caused by inherited genes, either from one or both parents.

    Environmental factors:

    Exposure to certain environmental factors, such as chemicals, drugs, and radiation, during pregnancy, can increase the risk of birth defects.


    Certain infections, such as rubella, cytomegalovirus, and Zika virus, can cause birth defects if the mother contracts the infection during pregnancy.

    Maternal health conditions:

    Maternal health conditions, such as poorly controlled diabetes, obesity, and high blood pressure, can increase the risk of birth defects.

    Lifestyle factors:

    Certain lifestyle factors, such as alcohol and tobacco use during pregnancy, can increase the risk of birth defects.

    Unknown factors - In some cases, the cause of birth defects is unknown, and it may be due to a combination of genetic and environmental factors.

    It's important to note that not all birth defects can be prevented, but taking certain precautions, such as maintaining good prenatal care, avoiding harmful substances, and getting vaccinated, can help reduce the risk of certain types of birth defects.
