Memorial website in the memory of your loved one

  After what appeared to be a perfect and normal pregnancy, Ava's mom went into labor on her due date. Ava came into this world the following morning without taking a breath. The doctor explained to us that Ava passsed due to a condition known as Vasa Preia.
     Vasa previa is a rarely (1:3000) reported condition in which fetal blood vessel(s) from the placenta or umbilical cord crosses the entrance to the birth canal, beneath the baby. The condition has a high fetal mortality rate (50-95%). This can be attributed to rapid fetal exsanguination resulting from the vessels tearing when the cervix dilates, membranes rupture or if the vessels become pinched off as they are compressed between the baby and the walls of the birth canal. 
      When vasa previa is detected prior to labor, the baby has a much greater chance of surviving. Survival rates can range from 50 -95%, but are coming up as vasa previa is being diagnosed more often.
     The International Vasa Foundation is working hard to educate doctors on this condition. Please visit their website at
     This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Ava Vallone who was born in New York on October 03, 2006 and passed away on October 03, 2006 . We will remember her forever.
