Nothing you did caused the omphalocele. It was no omission on your part either. Anyone telling you othwise is wrong. Best wishes.

Location: These are both birth defects where the intestine comes out of the abdominal wall through a defect. An omphalocele will be covered by a membrane, and there is a higher risk of other birth defects with this condition.
