CMV Action is the only UK charity offering advice and support to families affected by congenital CMV (cCMV). We are able to put families in touch with each other who may be facing similar issues or live nearby.CMV can pose serious problems to unborn babies if a woman catches it during pregnancy. In fact congenital CMV is one of the most common non-genetic cause of inner ear hearing loss and a major cause of childhood disability. Despite this, there is very little awareness of CMV and the facts are often misunderstood. 10 babies are born each day in the UK with CMV and 2 or 3 of these babies will have long-term problems – that is 1000 babies every year. We do not receive any government funding and it costs our charity £20,000 a year to help and support families affected by CMV.
