In brief: Higher risk

Meningomyeloceles are part of a group of neural tube developmental malformations called "open neural tube defects".
They generally occur spontaneously in about 1:1000 pregnancies but can be more common in certain situations. A series of sequential prenatal tests (blood, ultrasound and invasive i.e. Amniocentesis) can help detect babies so afflicted.
