According to the Mayo Clinic, spina bifida “... falls under the broader category of neural tube defects. Normally, the neural tube forms early in pregnancy, and it closes by the 28th day after conception. In babies with spina bifida, a portion of the neural tube fails to develop or close properly, causing defects in the spinal cord and in the bones of the spine.”
