Is cerebral palsy always a birth injury?

Cerebral palsy is commonly mentioned when people talk about birth injuries. If you are pregnant, you may even worry about your child getting it during the birthing process. However, what you may not understand is that your New York doctor may not be the one to blame if your child is born with CP.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, cerebral palsy is not always a birth injury. It can also be caused by abnormal development while in the womb. It is a misconception that a lack of oxygen during birth is the only cause of CP. It is now known that brain damage that leads to this condition can happen before your baby is born. It can also occur after labor and delivery any time before your child turns one, especially if your child suffers a brain injury. Research shows that it is actually a small percentage of CP cases that are caused by injuries during birth.

Genetics are another cause of CP. There is nothing you can do in that case, but you may find out about it before your child is born if this is the case.

There is no way to completely prevent CP, but you can ensure you have a healthy pregnancy and get regular checkups. You can also talk with your doctor about ways to reduce the risks. Express your concerns and talk them over with your doctor to get more information on the risks and to get informed about CP. This information is for education and is not legal advice.
