The birth of a child is a wondrous and joyous experience for most parents. It is a day that has been long-awaited by the parents, grandparents and loved ones. Unfortunately not every birth has a storybook outcome. On the contrary, sometimes due to error on the part of one or more of the medical professionals involved in the birthing process, a child is left with an injury which can dramatically affect the rest of the child’s life. Sometimes the injuries are not apparent immediately after the child is born, but rather they are discovered later when the child is not developing properly in either motor skills or perhaps even the child is not developing cognitively as it should. One condition which can arise from such injury which can occur to a child during childbirth if the physician does something wrong is cerebral palsy. A child can also have severe bone fractures, brain damage or even catch a life-threatening infection if the physician gets careless during the delivery. If you has apparent have noticed that your child may be showing symptoms that he may have been injured during childbirth, then you should have the child examined to verify whether or not there was harm done to the child during childbirth.
