How Birth Injuries Occur

There are many factors that may contribute to birth injuries, even if the mother’s pregnancy was generally healthy. These types of injuries can also occur before, during, and after childbirth.

What Types of Mistakes May Occur Before Birth That Cause a Birth Injury?

  • Medical professionals may fail to plan for a delivery adequately.
  • Signs of a baby experiencing medical complications or distress are not identified or acted upon.
  • The fetus’ mother exposes it to dangerous chemicals in the workplace.
  • The birth mother takes prescription drugs which may harm the fetus.
  • Medical professionals may apply excessive force. For example, using forceps during delivery when doing so is unnecessary.
  • Medical professionals providing negligent care during labor and delivery.
  • The baby’s brain does not receive sufficient oxygen during labor and delivery.
  • Attempting to deliver a baby with a high birth weight vaginally when doing so may be unsafe.
