What Is A Birth Injury?

Birth Injury Guide

No matter how long parents spend preparing their birth plans, reading pregnancy books and preparing their hospital bags with everything they might need, sometimes during delivery unforeseen complications can arise.

A particularly difficult labor or delivery can lead to conditions that harm the mother or baby. Often, these traumatic birth injuries could have been prevented with proper monitoring and timely diagnosis and correction of any issues.

Common causes of complications leading to birth injuries include:
•    an unexpectedly large baby
•    mother’s pelvis being too small or narrow to vaginally deliver the baby
•    prolonged labor
•    premature baby
•    ruptured placenta
•    a cord wrapped around the baby’s neck
•    a baby stuck in the birth canal
•    breech birth
•    preeclampsia or eclampsia

The types of birth injuries that can arise from the above situations include:
•    Nerve damage to the baby
•    Infections in mother or baby
•    Broken collarbones
•    Shoulder dystocia
•    Developmental delays
•    Brain damage
•    Breathing problems
•    Facial paralysis
•    Hemorrhages
•    Emergency c-sections
•    Emergency hysterectomies
