Birth Injuries Should Not Destroy Lives

All parents wish for a healthy baby and a safe delivery. But events during labor and delivery can result in a number of problems in the newborn infant. These problems are known as birth injuries. Birth injuries can be mild, disappearing in a few days or weeks. However, more serious birth injuries can last an entire lifetime.

All too often catastrophic brain damage, paralysis, or even death to a child occurs because someone didn’t do their job.
