The joy of giving birth is special and cherished. You are bringing a new life into the world and building your family. Sometimes, mistakes will happen that cause birth injuries. This can have a significant impact on the health and mental well-being of your child and family.

Statistics show that birth injuries happen to 1 out of every 7,000 babies. These problems result from something going wrong in the delivery room. It could be an error made by healthcare professionals, or a misdiagnosis. The effects are long-lasting, and you need someone on your side that will stand up for you.

Healthcare professionals will state that there are different causes of birth injuries. Some of the most notable include:

  • Big Babies: Babies that weigh over 8 pounds 13 ounces are more likely to have birth injuries.
  • Premature babies: Babies that are born at less than 37 weeks have weaker bodies and can be easily injured.
  • Shape of the Mother’s Pelvis: The shape and size of the mother’s pelvis could be too small for natural childbirth. A C-section is performed in these situations.
  • Difficult Childbirth: Long or difficult births are more likely to involve a birth injury.
  • Obesity: Sometimes, the mother’s weight can make childbirth more difficult.

The reality is that healthcare professionals are aware of these issues when they examine the mother. They are taught what to watch out for and how to address these issues. Many times these problems can be avoided by healthcare professionals’ taking the time and paying attention to what they are doing.

For example, a common birth injury is when the doctor is delivering the baby and uses forceps or the vacuum extraction method. The odds are higher that the child could move in a certain direction too fast, causing injury.

Many times healthcare professionals are overwhelmed, might not be paying attention, or use the wrong procedures. They may be aware of potential problems and yet do nothing to prevent them. The parents are then faced with caring for a child that is injured and could have life-long physical or mental disabilities.
