  • My cousin was born with it in 1982 before u/s were routinely done so her mom didnt know she had it til she was born! She is FINE now and had no issues growing up:) I would think your daughter probably wont be able to eat as much as another baby as she is recovering and you will need to keep the incision site clean but that will probably be it
