Cerebral palsy is a group of disorders that affect brain function, movement and bodily control. Cerebral palsy can be caused by injury to the brain before, during, or after birth.
The doctors caring for the pregnant mother and the unborn baby are responsible for adequate care during the pregnancy, labor, delivery, and immediately after the birth of the infant. Failing to take adequate care can result in the doctors and nurses being held accountable for problems related to the pregnancy. These problems can include:
Failure to respond to the changing condition and position of the unborn baby during labor
Failure to treat conditions in the mother during pregnancy
Failure to take tests during pregnancy; or not interpreting these tests properly
Failure to deliver via cesarean section if there is a problem during the birth
Over use of vacuum extraction.
Additionally a lack of oxygen to the brain or head trauma during labor and delivery can cause cerebral palsy. There are many factors that suggest the injury occurred as a result of improper medical care, or insult to the brain during the birthing process:
Medical malpractice can result in a child being born with cerebral palsy if the physician
Failed to do a C-Section or delayed performing a C-Section
Failed to notice that the baby was having problems during labor
The doctor didn't read the fetal monitor strip properly
Administration of too much Pitocin injuring the baby.
The doctor delayed even though:
a.The water broke
b.Bleeding was present
c.Labor took too long
d. Blood pressure was too high
