There is always a cause for Cerebral Palsy. Sometimes it simply stems from genetics or unavoidable complications in labor and delivery. In many cases, however, the cause of the cerebral palsy can be traced to some kind of medical error at some point in the birthing cycle:
- Pregnancy: There are many issues that threaten a child's health during pregnancy, including physical stress, eclampsia and preeclampsia, umbilical cord compression and low blood sugar.
- Labor: Often, doctors are guilty of improper fetal monitoring during labor, missing signs of reduced blood flow or lack of oxygen which could cause cerebral palsy.
- Birth: Mistakes in cesarean delivery or use of forceps and vacuum extraction can also result in cerebral palsy.
