Birth InjuryWe’re Here to Help

Is my child displaying symptoms of a birth injury? What exactly is a birth injury and how did this happen? Is my doctor to blame? What should I do once I find out my child has a birth injury? What will life with a child with a birth injury look like, and what is the prognosis of certain birth injuries? It’s natural for these and many more questions to come to mind. At Birth Injury Guide, we strive to answer all of your questions with the hope that we can help guide you and make your life a little easier if your child or loved one does have a birth injury.

We work hard to keep our information as relevant and as up-to-date as possible. We strive to educate families on many different types of birth injuries, what the symptoms are, how birth injuries are caused, how they can be diagnosed, what the available treatment is, what the prognosis is, and what assistance programs are available to them. For very serious birth injuries such as cerebral palsy, we include information on adaptive equipment, different forms of therapy, and how you can manage your child’s symptoms to make life easier for the whole family.

Additionally, given the recent increase in interest, we have added information about the link between Zofran and birth defects?
