Congenital Syphilis Information

The March of Dimes in cooperation with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is working to increase patient awareness of Congenital Syphilis.

Syphilis during pregnancy can cause serious problems for your baby, like premature birth (before 37 weeks of pregnancy). It also can cause death for your baby before or after birth. If your baby is born with syphilis, it can cause lifelong problems, like being blind or deaf. Learn how to protect your baby from syphilis.
