Common Types of Birth Injuries
There are several types of injuries and complications that can occur during a newborn’s delivery. Some may be temporary, while others will have a permanent effect on the baby’s health.
The most common neonatal injuries affect a baby’s head, neck and shoulders. These areas of the body are most susceptible to injuries because of the child is delivered in a position where the head is facing outward.
