When Is an Unborn Child Considered “at Risk” for a Birth Injury?

However, issues during the pregnancy can also put the child at risk of being born with a birth injury.

It is important to diagnose and treat birth injuries as soon as possible.  Left untreated, birth injuries can lead to developmental problems, brain trauma, and even paralysis.  There are several action symptoms that can be observed while your baby is still in the hospital that immediately indicate a birth injury.  An arched back while crying, breathlessness, excessive drooling, lethargy, light sensitivity, and seizures are just a few.

Health related symptoms include anemia, fever, hearing loss, low heart rate, low oxygen in the blood, persistent coughing, poor weight gain, wheezing, and jaundice.  In most birth injury cases, babies will exhibit both action and health-related symptoms.
