When healthcare professionals fail in that duty, that negligence can cause birth injuries either before birth or during labor and delivery.

A baby’s brain cells begin to die when deprived of oxygen. When a mother is experiencing contractions, the baby’s access to oxygen and blood flow is reduced—this is part of the natural labor process. Doctors and medical professionals are responsible for carefully monitoring the baby’s vital signs to ensure receipt of safe levels of oxygen. Sometimes doctors fail to carefully monitor the labor or even use drugs that can worsen oxygen loss, which can cause a number of serious birth injuries.
