What is a Birth Injury?

Delivering a baby is a difficult process, and can involve significant trauma for both the mother and the infant. These injuries appear in a variety of ways, and have several different causes. Many complications can arise during the birth of a child that can last a lifetime. Some injuries are genetic or form in the womb, like cleft palates, Down syndrome, and several other neurological or physical conditions. Here is one of the most common injuries discussed, dislocation or damage to the brachial plexus.

Others are caused or worsened by inattention, negligence, or mistakes on the part of healthcare professionals. This can result in damage to delicate areas such as the clavicle or the hands and feet.

How Do Birth Injuries Happen?

A birth injury can be caused or exacerbated in a variety of ways. This isn’t an exhaustive list, but it includes several common examples of how professionals can be negligent during childbirth.

  • Misuse instruments during delivery;
  • Do not respond to bleeding, distress, or umbilical cord placement;
  • Do not anticipate complications related to baby or maternal health; and
  • Delay ordering a caesarean section.

Other circumstances like oxygen deprivation can be serious, and could result in brain damage, limited motor function, and even death. You shouldn’t have to face your tragedy alone.
