The National CMV Foundation (NCMVF) is the only national
nonprofit comprised of a network of advocates and professionals whose mission
is to prevent pregnancy loss, childhood death, and disability due to cCMV.
About 1 in 200 children are born with cCMV and about 1 in 5 of those
children will have a permanent health condition or disability. NCMVF works to
inform and educate communities about the risks of cCMV infection, especially
among pregnant women. Children born with CMV may have birth defects and experience
significant developmental disabilities. Unfortunately, and despite this
reality, CMV remains the most common infection babies are born with in the U.S.
