Cerebral palsy is a permanent brain injury that occurs during or soon after birth. Unfortunately, it is permanent and many causes are preventable. Cerebral palsy affects many brain functions, including the victim’s mental capabilities, muscle coordination, and sensory functions. Today’s medical teams have many tools and warning signs at their disposal to help prevent such brain injuries such as fetal heart monitors, fetal strips, and warnings such as the color of the mother’s amniotic fluid. These indicators should alert them as to whether they should perform a Cesarean section.
Some Causes of Cerebral palsy include:
- Premature birth
- Medical malpractice which damages the brain during labor
- Trauma (accidents)
