Causes Of Birth Injuries
Many types of injuries induced during child birth can be prevented. As an example, Cerebral Palsy is a very common type of birth injury. It occurs due to 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.
