Join us for our third annual Run for Poly 5k Walk/Bike/Run as we raise awareness for polyhydramnios and raise funds to support education, research, and community for women and children affected by polyhydramnios of pregnancy. This event benefits Know Polyhydramnios, a 501c3 nonprofit organization.

What We Believe

We believe in giving every mom the best care during her pregnancy and giving every baby the resources they need so that they can thrive to their fullest potential. Over the past two years, Know Polyhydramnios has worked with industry leaders to study Polyhydramnios more closely as our first big step toward changing the standard of care for women pregnant with polyhydramnios and to implement proper testing and early intervention therapies for the infants of those women.

By changing the standard of care during pregnancy we can reduce the risks of preterm labor and the catastrophic conditions associated with delivery. When asked, women affected by polyhydramnios overwhelmingly agreed that they endured some kind of trauma related to their experience. Research has proven that stress has negative affects on both pregnancy and on the baby, so we believe that by improving the standard of care for women pregnant with polyhydramnios we can significantly reduce the trauma experienced by these women.

Research also shows that there is a high correlation between polyhydramnios and genetic anomalies in infants. But it often takes a year or more for babies to be properly diagnosed and treated. In fact, as many as 28% of babies thought to be from idiopathic polyhydramnios pregnancies end up being diagnosed with a genetic condition before their first birthday. We believe that with proper testing of infants and quicker access to early intervention programs we can help give infants of polyhydramnios gestations the opportunity to thrive to their fullest potential.
