The Idaho CMV Advocacy Project is dedicated to educating Idaho women and families about the risks of Cytomegalovirus (CMV) during pregnancy and prevention strategies.

CMV is a common virus of the herpes family that infects people of all ages.

CMV is one of the few viruses that can pass through  the placenta. Once infected, the virus can cause damage to the fetus’ brain, eyes and/or inner ears, as well as a variety of other disorders.
