Birth InjuriesThe Metropolitan Atlanta Development Disabilities Program communicates the health information on five disabilities that strongly relate to birth injury. Experts abound in the area probably because the premiere facility for disability research is also in Atlanta.

An online search for birth injury information shows up at least on the first three pages with law firms offering free consultation on birth injury cases.

While 90% of all births will not suffer injury, 10% easily means 6 of every 1000 Americans are born with a birth injury. Trauma is often brought by something physical hitting the head and other vital body parts while some could be more insidious like untreated infections, stress, and unfavorable medication. Effects of birth injury are not the same for every child. Some of these will have temporary to no effects but for some, the effects could last a lifetime such as in the case of cerebral palsy.

Visible and Invisible Signs of Injury

It can take up to 20 days after birth before you see the first signs of a birth injury. If your baby is unable to smile after 6 weeks from birth, then you will want to have a doctor take a look. Spasms and missed developmental milestones are red flags. The inability to stand without help after 18 months or outright behavioral difficulties underline the need to seek medical attention. Experts from Atlanta point out that birth injuries can include intellectual disabilities too.

Treat Them Early, Treat Them Well

The sooner that an injury is detected, the more likely you will see improvement in the condition. Medical treatments available will include surgery, medication, physical, and occupational therapy. Support for the detection, treatment, and management of disabilities resulting from the birth injury is also available through government services like Georgia Public Health. Private organizations also have plenty of initiatives to support parents and families begin to understand, manage, and even thrive in these challenges.
