SMA can affect a child's ability to crawl, walk, sit up, and control head movements.

Do babies with SMA move in the womb?

SMA type I (Werdnig-Hoffmann disease) SMA type I is usually noted prior to birth, due to a decrease in the baby's movements in utero, or early in life. Babies with this type of SMA have decreased muscle and trunk tone, resulting in floppiness of the limbs and weak arm and leg movements.
