    Thank you for the replies. I didn't really expect anyone to have much experience as it so rare although there is a higher incidence of it in babies of diabetic mothers. Will try that link. Thanks for your thoughts all x

    Hi
    No I'm insulin dependent and on a pump. Unstable sugars seemingly can contribute to complications. Hope this helps.

    I was because I had PCOS and my baby was born with VACTERL. Did this happen to you? I've been searching for a similar case and haven't had much luck. I think there is a direct correlation...can you share what you know please!
