With the birth of a child, parents experience an array of emotions. By the end of delivery, most parents experience an overwhelming sense of joy. However, in some unfortunate and unfair circumstances, new parents must face the reality that their baby was harmed during birth. After a birth injury occurs, parents deserve answers for the struggles that they are facing for the rest of their child’s life.
Parents hear a litany of excuses from hospital staff. Medical workers may say birth injuries are unavoidable, genetic, or somehow due to the health of the mother.

While medical procedures are not perfect, birth injuries are often a direct result of failure on the part of a medical professional.

What Is a Birth Injury?
A baby may experience a birth injury before, during, or just after birth. Birth injuries occur in a variety of ways. In some instances, a baby may experience injuries that heal such as bruises, scrapes, and broken bones. When injuries cause damage to nerves or the brain, injuries are serious and often cause struggles for the rest of a child’s life.
Common birth injuries include:
- Brachial Plexus Injuries
- C-Section Injuries
- Cerebral Palsy
- Erb's Palsy
- Fetal Distress
- Head Cooling
- Hypoxic-ischemic Encephalopathy
- Infant Brain Damage
- Injuries to Mothers
- Shoulder Dystocia
- Vacuum & Forceps Injuries
- Wrongful Death
When a doctor or midwife makes critical mistakes during or after the birth process, it puts the baby at risk for serious injury. While birth injuries are not always predictable, medical professionals must employ their training to preserve the health of mother and child. Just one poor decision on the part of a medical professional can subject a family to a lifetime of struggle.
