In brief: None Known

An omphalocele is a birth defect occuring prior to birth.

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

In brief: No

Omphalocele is a sporadically occurring abdominal wall defect.
Intestine and often liver herniate into the umbilical cord. Surgery can be undertaken shortly after birth to place the abdominal organs into the abdominal cavity and close/repair the abdominal musculature.
