Only 14% of women have even heard of CMV, much less it's effects and symptoms. CMV is a devasting illness that affects mostly pregnant women and their unborn/newborn babies. It can cause a child's life to be shortened and can cause brain problems, inflamed organs, small birth weight and other awful side effects. It's time that OB/Gyn's and child care centers took the time to tell people about CMV. People who are around large groups of childen often are suggested to be tested BEFORE getting pregnant, but how can they if no one tells them about the risks of CMV.
