Birth Injuries & Early Symptoms
Welcoming a newborn into the world should be a day filled with joy and happiness. However, when a baby suffers a birth injury it can be devastating for a parent. There are not only questions about what happened, but how it happened and whether or not it could have been prevented. Sometimes a birth injury is readily apparent at birth, while others may not become noticeable until months later. It is important to let your child’s medical provider know of any concerns you have regarding any potential symptoms of a birth injury. A doctor is the only one who can diagnose a birth injury. If your child has received a birth injury-related diagnosis, please call us. We’re here for you. Let us see what we can do to help.
Immediate/Early Symptoms of Birth Injuries

- The baby requires resuscitation right after birth
- Limp and unreactive to sights and sounds
- Abnormal movements or seizures
- Weak cry
- Need for body or head cooling
- Severe bruising
- Skull fractures
- Brain bleeds
- Signs of organ dysfunction, especially the heart, lungs, kidney, and liver
- A lack of interest in feeding or difficulty feeding
This list is not exhaustive. If you have concerns about your child’s health you should consult a doctor. Only a medical professional can accurately diagnose a birth injury.
