One of the biggest fears of expectant parents, suffering birth injury can be a devastating and traumatic occurrence. Although we all do our best to minimize the potential risks, much of the birthing process is out of our hands once it springs into action. With that said, the following is a closer look at the matter of birth injury, some examples of potential injuries, as well as other pertinent information.
Facts About Birth Injury
With an array of potential injuries that can be caused during the birthing process, some of the most common are as follows:
- Bruising and Forceps Marks
- Facial Paralysis
- Brain Injury
