Some examples of birth injuries include, but are not limited to:
Subconjunctival hemorrhage - Bleeding beneath an infant's eyes caused by broken blood vessels
and evidenced by a red ring around one or both irises.
Fractures or bruising caused by forceps - Some deliveries necessitate the use of vacuum suctions or forceps. Improperly
used, forceps can cause bruising, cuts, or red marks on the baby's
skull - or even depressed skull fractures, which require surgical remedy.
Broken bones - Breech deliveries or other challenging births can result in broken bones,
especially fractures in the collarbone or clavicle.
Traumatic brain injuries - If the infant is deprived of oxygen, whether due to blood loss or a
twisted umbilical cord, he or she may suffer serious and irreversible
brain damage and develop conditions such as cerebral palsy and epilepsy.
Cephalohematoma - This condition is characterized by bleeding between the skull and its
outer layer. Jaundice can result from particularly severe cephalohematoma.
