Congenital toxoplasmosis

Overview

Is termination of the pregnancy, or abortion, an option if my baby has congenital toxoplasmosis?

If congenital toxoplasmosis in the baby has been confirmed in the baby through an amniocentesis, some families will consider termination. This is very personal choice and it is important to make an informed decision by talking with your doctors and possibly a genetic counselor.
