Detecting a Birth Injury

It is estimated that birth injuries may occur as often as seven out of every 1,000 births. It may not be apparent until months or years after birth that a birth injury did indeed occur. However, some immediate signs of birth injury includes: Failure to breath immediately upon birth; seizures within the first 48 hours after birth; swelling or marks (bruises or abrasions) on your baby’s face, head, or shoulder; lack of muscle tone (baby appears to be floppy); and one arm is limp.

Signs of birth injury that appear later in life are: difficulty with speech, lack of coordination, drooling and an uneven gait.

Birth Injury Causes

Negligence or malpractice may have caused your baby’s birth injury if medical professionals failed to: ascertain your full medical history, properly treat a maternal infection, properly diagnosis and treat risk for premature birth, properly use forceps or vacuum extractors, diagnose and treat a baby that was too small or too big, properly monitor and treat maternal blood pressure and blood sugar, or improperly delayed Cesarean section.
