Causes Of Birth Injuries
Some of the common issues that arise, causing serious birth injuries, include:
- Issues related to the care of the mother: Complications during pregnancy, premature or prolonged labor, and difficulties during delivery
- Issues related to the care of the child: Fetal complications and distress during pregnancy, improper positioning during delivery, fetal infections and illnesses
- Hypoxia and anoxia: Inadequate oxygen or blood flow to the child during birth can result in brain damage, cerebral palsy and other serious lifelong conditions.
- Cesarean section issues: When doctors fail to order a C-section in a timely fashion, rush into a C-section or make critical errors during this delicate surgery, the results can be catastrophic.
For any type of problem that can arise during the birthing process, basic attentiveness and following professional standards of care can eliminate or alleviate almost any problem that can arise.
