Common Neurological Injuries In Childbirth
Mistakes during birth can lead to a number of neurological impairments. The most common include:
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb’s palsy
- Hypoxia leading to brain damage
Many neurological injuries suffered by infants are caused by lack of oxygen to either the brain or another body part. Some are the result of physical trauma during birth. Unfortunately, many neurological injuries result in permanent disability.
