A nurse that gave birth to a little girl with a broken clavicle was stunned to find out that there were no braces she could use on her baby to alleviate the pain and keep the arm immobilized.
So she did what she had to do – she made one herself.
“The pediatrician came in and told me my baby’s clavicle was broken,” said Kirsten Quist. “My first question was, ‘what brace do I buy?’ and then the doctor told me, ‘there isn’t one.’”
While her solution is now helping one form of birth injury, we know there are many more that do not have an easy fix. In fact, sometimes birth injuries lead to permanent damage or even death for the mother or baby.

There are two statistics that should shock you:
In a country that is so medically advanced, why are we seeing these things happen at these rates?
The following problems are common injuries for babies during delivery:
The injuries listed above can lead to a child having brain damage, developmental delays, learning disabilities, paralysis, and more. In the worst cases, they can even lead to death.
Doctors and nurses always need to be aware of a baby’s position during birth and they should constantly monitor the child for distress.
Healthcare professionals should constantly monitor a mother during delivery for abnormal signs of distress. We know that deliveries can become complicated, but if doctors fail to recognize certain signs and symptoms, mothers can experience excessive bleeding during and after the birth, uterine rupture, abnormal birth positions of the baby, and more.
Studies have shown that about half of maternal childbirth deaths could be prevented and half of the injuries reduced with a better medical care that reduces delays in diagnosis and treatment of childbirth injuries.
We know how devastating birth injuries can be, whether they happen to the baby or the mother. When they occur, you deserve answers. If you suspect a birth injury was caused due to the negligence of healthcare providers, seek legal assistance immediately.
