“I was tasked with helping to find out why so many babies had gastroschisis, a birth defect in which their internal organs are outside the body. While I realized that I didn’t want to pursue neonatology, I also saw the huge gap in research: the social information. No one was talking to the mothers about what might have happened in their pregnancy to cause this.”
