Correct measurement of oxygen intake is crucial during childbirth. A lack of oxygen can be extremely injurious, resulting in cerebral hypoxia or hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE). It may also result in cerebral palsy if the placenta is not properly functioning or tears away from the uterus wall.
When this happens, all too often parents do not find out until much later, when a child shows developmental delay. Parents may realize that the birthing process was somewhat unusual. It is important to realize that if a baby has seizures in the first 24 to 48 hours of life, it may be symptomatic of a birth injury.
If you believe your child suffered a birth injury, even years after the fact, it is important to reach out to a team who can determine whether brain damage was caused by medical negligence. With more than 25 years of experience, we are prepared to help you do precisely that.
