Premature Babies, Brain Injuries and Cerebral Palsy
Birth injuries can uncover a medical mistake that was likely the cause of a preventable traumatic experience to a mom, an unborn fetus, or a newborn. This is especially true in early deliveries that could have been prevented with closer obstetric care and caution. Your baby may have been premature if born too early, before 37 weeks of pregnancy, while an expected, healthy pregnancy should last approximately 40 weeks.
- Researchers from the Society for Neurosciencesay more than 60,000 babies are born early, weighing less than 3.3 pounds each year.
