A “birth injury” or “birth trauma” typically refers to labor and delivery injuries that are sustained by a newborn. These devastating injuries can range from mild to severe, and from minor bruising to permanent nerve damage. When a doctor, nurse, or health care professional makes an error during labor and delivery, permanent and life-threatening birth injuries can occur. These injuries can lead to a lifetime of disability, pain, and even premature death.
Some common birth injuries include:
Birth injuries are more common when there are difficulties during delivery. Factors that can complicate delivery include, the baby’s size and position, prolonged labor, and the size and shape of the mother’s pelvis.
Sadly birth injuries are often caused, or worsened, by medical errors. Medical errors during labor and delivery can include:
Birth injuries can be devastating for newborns and their loved ones. Severe birth injuries, which result in permanent disabilities, can also be financially devastating for families. Costs of medications, therapy, rehabilitation, assistive devices, special schooling, and other unexpected costs can add up quickly.
