The birth of a child is a wonderful event, filled with joy and celebration.  Parents and grandparents anxiously await the good news that the child has entered the world.
A dark cloud can form quickly when a birth injury occurs.

While birth injuries are rare, they do happen.  When a complication arises during the birthing process, the doctor and medical staff need to act quickly.  Failure to take the appropriate actions in a prompt manner can be catastrophic for the child.  Many different types of injuries can arise, including a spinal cord birth injury.

How spinal cord birth injuries happen

If a baby is in an abnormal position, such as breech, the risk of injury goes up.  A baby’s spine is especially susceptible to injury when this type of situation occurs.  The increased force and pressure can result in a serious spinal cord injury at birth.

Medical advances over the years have helped minimize birth injuries, including those involving the spinal cord. Doctors often perform cesarean sections to avoid undue risks to the child and mother.  However, sometimes medical professionals fail to do what is necessary to avoid a catastrophic birth injury.

What parents need to know

The time period following a birth injury is scary, confusing and overwhelming.  If your child has suffered a birth injury, you might not know the root cause of the trauma or what actions should be taken.  Unfortunately, your child may be facing extensive medical care and lifelong complications due to the injury. You do not have to face this situation alone.
