Childbirth Injuries Can Happen To Infant, Mother
Risks exist during childbirth and may lead to injuries. But some of these injuries may have been preventable. The negligence of physicians, nurses and other health care professionals may have contributed to those injuries, which may include:
- Brain damage caused by oxygen deprivation to the infant. This can happen when the umbilical cord wraps around the child’s neck. The resulting injuries may lead to chronic seizures, impaired vision and cerebral palsy
- Broken bones such as fractures to the skull, legs and collar bone, sometimes caused if the delivering physician roughly pulls out the baby
- Nerve damage to the infant, and the child may not be able to move his or her arms
- Vaginal tears and a ruptured uterus to the mother
