Types of birth injuries

Sadly, birth injuries happen every day. According to a report by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, a research arm of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, there were 157,000 potentially avoidable injuries to mothers and newborns in 2006 nationwide. The most common birth injuries include:

 

  • Cerebral palsy – caused by brain damage and resulting in a lifetime of poor motor skills control
  • Erb’s palsy – a brachial plexus injury that can permanently damage the nerves in your baby’s hands, arms and shoulders
  • Shoulder dystocia – potentially causing a number of injuries to the newborn including brachial plexus injuries, a fractured clavicle or humerus, or even birth asphyxia
  • Brain damage from oxygen deprivation or reduction in blood flow

 

 

  • Vacuum extraction injuries – errors or inappropriate use of equipment that may lead to brain swelling or eye bleeding in your infant
  • Forceps injuries – including facial injuries, disfigurement or paralysis to the infant, and tissue tears or vaginal lacerations to the mother
