Causes Of Birth Injuries

Many types of injuries at birth can be prevented. For example, Cerebral Palsy, a common type of birth injury, is the manifestation of a lack of sufficient oxygen to the fetus during labor. This lack of oxygen starts out as perinatal asphyxia. The prolonged lack of oxygen ultimately causes permanent brain tissue damage. The obstetrician team should be able to prevent this lack of oxygen by monitoring variations in the heart rate of the fetus during birth. Other types of birth injuries, such as fractures, paralysis and nerve trauma can be the end result of the doctor or healthcare practitioner being too rough during the birthing process. Some birth injuries, such as Shoulder Dystocia, are a result of the fetus being too large or awkwardly positioned in the uterus.
