There are several causes of birth defects and birth injuries. Some occur during the prenatal period as a result of medications or other toxins that the mother is exposed to prior to birth. Sadly, the harm caused to a young infant while inutero can be devastating and permanent.
Also, healthy children are injured at the time of the birthing process. A common form of a traumatic birth injury is prenatal asphyxia. This condition occurs when the child is deprived of a sufficient amount of oxygen to the brain at or immediately before delivery. The effects of this condition can be devastating and cause permanent damage to the child.
