Birth injuries include injuries that occur to the mother or baby during the labor and delivery process. Many other times, babies or mothers suffer serious injuries as a result of negligent prenatal or care they receive after delivery. In these heartbreaking cases, the injury occurs due to something that happens in the birthing process, such as improper fetal monitoring or improper delivery. Some of the birth injuries and prenatal injuries that occur involve:

Cerebral palsy Erb's palsy Hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) Shoulder dystocia Brain injuries caused by oxygen deprivation Wrongful death of the child or mother Twin-to-twin or triplet-to-triplet transfusion syndrome Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy is a term used to describe a group of chronic conditions affecting body movements and muscle coordination. It is caused by damage to one or more specific areas of the brain, usually occurring during fetal development, or during infancy. It can also occur before, during or shortly following birth. "Cerebral" refers to the brain and "Palsy" to a disorder of movement or posture.

If someone has cerebral palsy it means that because of an injury to their brain (cerebral) they are not able to use some of the muscles in their body in the normal way (palsy). Children with cerebral palsy may not be able to walk, talk, eat or play in the same ways as most other children.  Cerebral palsy is neither progressive nor communicable. It is also not "curable" in the accepted sense, although education, therapy and applied technology can help persons with cerebral palsy lead productive lives. It is important to know that cerebral palsy is not a disease or illness. It isn't contagious and it doesn't get worse.

 Cerebral palsy is characterized by an inability to fully control motor function, particularly muscle control and coordination.  Depending on which areas of the brain have been damaged, one or more of the following may occur:

  • Muscle tightness or spasm
  • Involuntary movement
  • Disturbance in gait and mobility
  •  Abnormal sensation and perception
  • Impairment of sight, hearing or speech
  • Seizures
