WHAT IS A TRAUMATIC BIRTH?
Traumatic births can lead to serious birth injuries that can have a significant impact on your child’s future development
Lack of Oxygen
When a maternal complication, long labor or difficult delivery compromises the baby, the baby can lose vital oxygen. This can cause serious brain damage, especially to the baby’s cerebellum, which can result in loss of motor function and other neuromuscular disabilities.
Lack of oxygen can result in serious injury, including:
- Brain damage
- Cerebral palsy
- Hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy
- Brain hemorrhage
