Signs Of TBI At Birth

Some signs of birth defects, cerebral palsy and head injuries can include:

  • Discoloration: In many cases, a child delivered blue or with some other discoloration can be exhibiting signs of serious injury, including traumatic brain injury.
  • Low activity: Crying and moving vigorously are both signs of a healthy child. When a child is quiet and very still at birth, this could be a serious warning sign.
  • Signs of distress: If there are signs of physical distress like major contusions or open wounds, these could signify more serious internal injuries. If these signs of distress occur on the child's head, there is greater likelihood that they could lead to TBI.
