The devastation of a birth injury affects the entire family

Over the past three weeks, we have discussed three serious birth injuries that can have a long-lasting impact on a baby. Those three birth injuries were meconium aspiration syndrome, fetal distress and acardiac twin syndrome. While these conditions don't automatically mean harm to a baby, without proper medical management, they can be devastating. When they aren't managed properly, parents might find themselves on an uphill battle fighting for their child.

Risk of birth injury higher at military hospitals

Kentucky military members may want to look at their health care options when they or their significant others become pregnant. Even though military hospitals assist in the labor and delivery of at least 50,000 babies every year, these babies face double the risk of suffering from a birth injury when compared to civilian hospitals.

Medical malpractice in autism-labor link?

Kentucky doctors might be looking closely at research showing a link between induced labor and autism. As in cases of birth injury, later developmental difficulties like autism may be ascribed to malpractice if doctors make the decision to induce. The study examined the North Carolina Detailed Birth Record and Education Research databases, finding 5,500 cases of autism spectrum disorder out of about 625,000 live births.
