What are the Most Common Injuries a Child can Suffer During Birth?


Common conditions that can result from birth injuries include:

  • Cerebral Palsy and Erb’s Palsy
  • Nerve damage
  • Damage to the skull
  • Brain damage
  • Future learning disabilities
  • Delayed early development (crawling, walking, talking)

Birth injuries can be caused by many different factors. Common causes of childbirth injuries include:

  • Infection
  • Lack of oxygen
  • Neonatal sepsis
  • Preeclampsia
  • Dangerous medications
  • Traumatic delivery
  • Improper manipulation of the baby (potentially with tools including vacuums, forceps)
  • Failure to monitor baby’s vital signs

If childbirth injuries were preventable — for the mother or baby — the doctors, nurses, surgeons, and medical institution can be held accountable.
