• Brachial plexus injury during birth

    Posted on June 16th, 2009 admin No comments

    Childbirth is an exciting time. Yet despite modern medical advances, there are several risks. Many factors come into play during childbirth and if complications occur, it is crucial how your child’s birth is achieved. Sometimes, the baby’s shoulder can get caught in the birth canal causing injury to the baby. It can be related to the size of the baby, it’s angle during delivery, a breech presentation or prolonged labor. The force used to deliver the baby can cause damage to the brachial plexus nerves. The actions of your medical professional during childbirth are crucial to the health of the baby.
