Some of us want nothing more in life than to be a parent; the thought of being a mom or a dad fills your heart with unmatched joy, and when you finally conceive, your excitement can be overwhelming. Tragically, even if momma is careful throughout her entire pregnancy, unexpected and horrible things can still happen at no fault of her own.
Birth injuries affect nearly 30,000 innocent children every year. That’s 3 babies every single hour, or over 75 per day. Up to 8 live births per 1,000 results in a birth injury. If you ask me, that’s 8 injuries too many. Even more heartbreaking, over half of them could have been entirely prevented had the medical team overseeing the pregnancy and delivery been more careful and vigilant.
Birth injuries can lead to profound disabilities in the child, permanently altering their lives. Not only are their lives forever changed, as parents, so are yours. Instead of seeing the life that you anticipated unfold in front of you, your precious child is going to need extra care from you due to their disabilities.
Common disabilities that can arise from birth injury may include:
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb’s palsy
- Spinal cord injuries
- Broken bones
- Oxygen deprivation
No hospitals are free from blame or responsibility; both private and public hospitals can be quite hazardous to your child, with 4.33 to 5.08 injuries per 1,000 births for a private hospital, and 6.11 for a public hospital. Both small and large hospitals can be equally dangerous at 5.53 and 5.45, respectively.
