3 ways a cerebral palsy diagnosis will change your life

Pregnancy is a time of hopeful expectations. Mothers-to-be spend many hours patiently awaiting the arrival of their little bundle of joy. Tragically, a mom can do everything right during pregnancy and labor and still have her newborn sustain birth injuries if a doctor makes a mistake.

Birth injuries are not the same as birth defects

Expectant parents want to bring home a healthy child. While this does occur in most cases, there are instances in which cases can take a turn for the worst. For these parents, finding out what is wrong with their child, learning the treatment plan, and understanding the prognosis becomes a priority.

Misoprostol use in labor can cause birth injuries or even death

The drug Misoprostol, brand name Cytotec, is an ulcer drug. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has a label for the drug that specifically speaks about the dangers of administering Misoprostol during labor or pregnancy. The FDA clearly states that use of the drug in an off-label manner during or after labor is not an approved use of the drug.

Overcoming the challenges of a child with cerebral palsy

During pregnancy, you probably envisioned your child growing up running around freely, playing with other children and otherwise growing up happy and healthy. Those dreams were then shattered when a doctor diagnosed your child with cerebral palsy. Your love for your child doesn't change, but how you, your child and the rest of your family live will.
