By: Mariam Alkhayelah, Staff Reporter, CBC News / Mariam March 14, 2020, 11:22:42Baby Jordon Jordan was born with a condition called microcephaly.
This is an early development and the baby could be born with the condition by the end of the year.
Microcephalois is a rare condition in which the brain is smaller than average, making it difficult for babies to develop normally.
A condition like this could be fatal for the baby, and it can be caused by a number of factors, including genetics, diet, and trauma.
However, for some, the symptoms are so severe that they’re able to lead to other health issues.
There are also people who are born with microcephelas who have normal brain development.
One of those individuals is Dr. Shireen Jamali, an obstetrician-gynecologist at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg.
Jamali says that it’s possible for microcepheles to be diagnosed in babies before they’re born, but that she and her colleagues are trying to find out more about the condition and find a treatment.
She said that it may be possible to detect the condition in babies up to two years old, but only if the child has been exposed to a certain amount of chemicals during pregnancy.
The baby is currently in intensive care, and the condition will likely be evaluated in the coming months.
