An update on Zika for 2017

In 2016, the World Health Organization declared the Zika infection an international public health emergency because of its connection with neurological disorders and birth defects. Since then, a lot has happened. There have been confirmed cases of Zika virus infection in the United States, and in April 2017, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published a report of babies born in the U.S. whose mothers possibly had been infected with Zika virus.  

Meiling Parker, MD, maternal-fetal medicine specialist with Minnesota Perinatal Physicians, a part of Allina Health, provides an update on Zika virus and what women and men who are planning for a family should know.
