If your baby suffered a lack of oxygen to the brain during pregnancy or delivery it may have been a result of medical malpractice. It may have been a result of the failure of the doctors, nurses or midwives to recognize a problem during pregnancy or during labor and delivery that caused the problem.
One of the first signs that your baby suffered a lack of oxygen to the brain is seizures. When you hear the word seizure, you think of a body shaking or convulsing uncontrollably. In newborns or babies, seizures can look different.
A baby that is having a seizure may have a blank stare, or stop breathing. She may nod her head, blink her eyes very fast or lets out a a loud pitched cry. If you notice that your baby tightens her arms or a leg, or you see lip smacking, or shivering this could be a seizure. If you notice these symptoms consult your doctor immediately.
