Birth injuries come in several different forms and ways. Some birth injuries are obvious and seen immediately, such as bruises, broken bones, injuries due to forceps or vacuum extraction, or lacerations. These are typically seen as mild birth injuries.
More severe birth injuries could be seen immediately or could be discovered over time. The ones that are seen immediately could indicate severe problems immediately, such as children bluish in color, having trouble breathing, soft bulges in the baby’s head, the inability to suck, vomiting, arched back while crying, the inability to cry, spastic motions, or seizures.
It could take a while for parents or staff to recognize pain in one or several limbs, jaundice, soft bulges on the baby’s head, rashes, tenderness, stiff muscles, variation in muscle tone between flabbiness and firmness, problems eating or no eating at all, and high-pitched cries.
Since every birth injury is unique, it’s difficult to determine the exact treatment that will work for each baby without a proper diagnosis. In addition, some parents may opt to have their babies go through more traditional treatments while others may prefer holistic, natural methods of healing. Regardless of which options you choose, it’s important to speak with your healthcare provider beforehand to weigh out the pros and cons of each type of treatment.
