Cerebral palsy may be attributed to medical negligence during pregnancy and delivery. It is the responsibility of every healthcare provider to anticipate the risks that come with pregnancy and childbirth and do something about it in a timely manner. Prenatal exams should ensure that the baby is developing in a safe environment in the womb and that there are no infections that could affect the fetus as well as his or her brain.
At the same time, doctors should ensure that delivery takes place in a safe environment and that the baby is handled with utmost care. This means various things such as not leaving the baby in the birth canal for too long, ensuring that the mother’s and baby’s vital signs are monitored at all times, and providing adequate care during the whole process.
