Broken Clavicle: A Common Birth Injury

A trip to the hospital to deliver a child is supposed to be one of the few times that a couple travels to the hospital in a happy mood. They are looking forward to welcoming a new member into their family and only want for their new child to be healthy. Unfortunately, the childbirth process doesn't always go as planned and sometimes there are complications along the way.

Can a Forceps-Assisted Delivery Cause Birth Injuries?

No family goes into the delivery room expecting problems to arise with the delivery process; however, sometimes physicians need to use extra equipment to help the baby travel through the birth canal. In an earlier post, the vacuum extraction assisted vaginal deliveries were discussed. Along with vacuum extraction, forceps can also help extract the baby from the birth canal.

Klumpke's Palsy: A Common Birth Injury

Unfortunately, birth injuries happen to a large number of babies every year. While some birth injuries are unavoidable, other injuries are the results of mistakes made by medical professionals. If a child is injured by a mistake made by a medical professional, those individuals should be held responsible.

When prescription drugs cause birth defects

Pregnancy is rarely an easy journey. The discomforts of pregnancy can range from mildly irritating to potentially fatal. As a result, many pregnant women require prescription medication from time to time. Sometimes, these medications are absolutely necessary and cannot be avoided or traded for safer drugs. But at other times, prescriptions should be avoided or swapped for alternatives in order to protect both the woman and her pregnancy.

How important are nurses in the birthing process?

When considering the delivery of a child, most prospective parents think of the doctor as the most important person (other than the mother and child, of course). And it is true that the doctor is tremendously important in the pregnancy and birthing process. Expecting parents usually create a birth plan with their doctor and expect their doctors to be there during the birth to make critical decisions.

Recognizing the symptoms of cerebral palsy
