Answer:

Because cerebral palsy is caused by damage to a baby’s brain, the condition is actually quite preventable in most cases. Most of the issues that lead to brain injury—and consequently CP—should be checked for, anticipated and/or monitored by a physician. Some of the health problems in the mother that can bring about brain injury during pregnancy are herpes simplex, rubella, high blood pressure, diabetes, thyroid issues and several others.

During labor and delivery there are numerous problems that can lead to a birth injury, including the umbilical cord becoming compressed, the placenta detaching prematurely, or the use or forceps or vacuum extraction during a difficult delivery.
