What is Birth Asphyxia?
If a child does not receive enough oxygen before, during, or immediately following birth it can result in birth asphyxia. This can lead to cerebral palsy since the lack of oxygen in the brain causes brain damage. About 9% of cerebral palsy cases are a result of birth asphyxia. Not all cases of birth asphyxia are caused by medical malpractice, but if a health care provider misses the signs of birth asphyxia they can be held accountable for their negligence.
