hi,
if genetic causes of microcephaly excluded then the other possible causes are
intrauterine infections like cytomegalovirus, rubella, varicella etc,
exposure to toxic chemicals,
untreated phenylketonuria etc,
so you discuss these things with your doctor and take his opinion and proceed accordingly.
Take care.
