What are the Signs of a Birth Injury?

I often get calls from parents that have questions about the care that their newborn child, newborn baby received after birth. This is called the neonatal period. Their child may have also spent time in what’s called the NICU, the neonatal intensive care unit. Whenever a healthy baby is born and has to spend extended time in the hospital, usually more than two or three days after birth, there’s always questions as to whether perhaps this child was injured during the course of their birth or after the fact. Some signs that parents should watch for in terms of their newborn to make sure that they are receiving appropriate care is whether their child has low sugars, is very jaundiced, or is having any seizure activity after birth.
