Common Causes and Types of Birth Injuries

There are numerous causes of birth injuries; one of the most common unpreventable causes of birth injuries can be premature birth. Even then, occasionally premature birth can be the result of poorly managed health care during the pregnancy. Furthermore, a large number of birth injuries are caused by improper hospital birthing procedures and handling after the birth. Some of the most common types of birth injuries include:

  • Breech Birth
  • Hematoma
  • Erb’s Palsy
  • Cerebal Palsy
  • Infection
