There is no guaranteed way to prevent craniosynostosis. Prenatal genetic testing may show gene mutations that could lead to craniosynostosis. A genetic counselor can help you understand genetic risks and possible treatment options if your baby is born with craniosynostosis.

You can increase your chances of having a healthy baby by:

  • Scheduling regular prenatal care visits.
  • Speaking with your doctor about potential risk factors, including risks associated with fertility medications or thyroid disease.
  • Taking prenatal vitamins or other supplements as directed.
