What are the most common birth injuries?
While birth injuries are rare, they do occur. In fact, 5 out of every 1,000 babies will suffer an injury during birth. Often, these injuries are the direct result of a doctor’s failure to recognize a complication and to quickly act upon it. Birth injuries and pregnancy complications can lead to a host of problems for you or your child for the rest of your lives.
Here are some of the most common types of birth injuries:
Brachial plexus injuries
Brain injuries or brain damage
Many of these injuries are sustained when improper procedures are used in the birthing process. For example, if the doctor was pulling too hard on the infant’s arms and legs, this can cause brachial plexus injuries. Cerebral palsy can occur if the baby experiences some kind of trauma during the birth. This can lead to serious delays in the child’s motor skills and cognitive functions.
