Did a doctor's negligence cause your child's cerebral palsy?

Cerebral palsy is a broad term that refers to a number of different conditions that may affect an infant's brain function and bodily movements. The condition may arise a number of ways, both during pregnancy and during the birth process itself, and even after the child is delivered. In many instances, the condition is not the result of some environmental factor or mistake on the part of the mother, but rather negligence on the part of a doctor overseeing prenatal care or performing delivery.

Off-label drug use during labor could result in a tragedy

Pregnancy is often a time that is both terrifying and full of joyful expectation. Mothers-to-be often do anything in their power to ensure a healthy pregnancy with the hopes of giving birth to a healthy newborn. Regular doctor visits, exercise, healthy eating and even supplemental vitamins can all play a crucial role in the development of an unborn child. Sadly, all of that hard work can be undone by one medical mistake.

Did your infant's hypoxia result from malpractice?

During your pregnancy and delivery journey, your infant faces many risks that may affect his or her life for years to come. Although medical advancements to identify, prevent and treat neonatal threats have made great strides in the last few decades, there is still plenty of room for your child to experience unnecessary harm.

Doctor calls his broker during delivery

Imagine that the day you have been waiting for has finally arrived. In just a few hours you would give birth to your child. Your pregnancy had been easy and you did not expect any complications during the delivery. But during the last, and most critical minutes of the birth, the doctor continued to leave the room and made a serious of decisions that had disastrous consequences.

Cerebral palsy creates obstacles that last a lifetime

It is every parent's hope that their child will grow up to live a full and rewarding life. And if that child is born healthy, then he or she should have an opportunity to do just that. But if a baby suffers an injury while being delivered, the chances of living a normal life could be greatly diminished.

Your baby's first cry is followed by an important test

It is a familiar scene in movies and on TV shows; immediately after a baby is delivered, the doctor holds it by the legs and gives it a firm rap on the butt and crying ensues. However, in reality, crying is actually induced by simply stroking and massaging the baby's skin. But why make the baby cry at all? Isn't just being born harrowing enough? Well, as it turns out, doctors have a very good reason to make a baby cry.
