Spina Bifida, an incomplete closure of the spinal column that occurs in the first month of pregnancy, is the most frequently occurring permanently disabling birth defect in the United States, and it affects Hispanics more than any other racial or ethnic group. By consuming 400 mcg (0.4 mg) of folic acid in a supplement or multivitamin prior to pregnancy, women can reduce the likelihood of their child being born with serious birth defects like Spina Bifida by as much as 70 percent.

The SBAGNE is a local affiliate of the Spina Bifida Association. The SBAGNE is dedicated to enhancing the lives of individuals in Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont affected by Spina Bifida, by providing a community of support, advocacy and education.
