About Shoulder Dystocia
Shoulder dystocia occurs when, after delivery of the baby’s head, the shoulder gets caught.
Shoulder dystocia can lead to a wide range of harmful side effects.
Negligence on the part of the medical staff involved in the delivery process is often to blame.
The team at DLG For Me has the experience necessary to determine whether your child's shoulder dystocia was a direct result of a healthcare professional's negligence during the birthing process.
Common effects of shoulder dystocia injuries include:
A Lack of Oxygen
An infant may suffer from lack of oxygen if shoulder dystocia occurs during the birthing process.
Lack of oxygen leads to serious side effects that may have lifelong impacts. These include infant brain damage and even death.
Broken Arm or Collarbone
When an infant's shoulder remains stuck inside their mother’s body, the newborn may suffer a broken arm or collarbone.
Infants experiencing shoulder dystocia may suffer from nerve damage to one arm, often referred to as a "brachial plexus” injury.
This can make it difficult for an infant to use certain muscles in their hand, arm, or shoulder.
When a medical team fails to resolve an infant’s shoulder dystocia quickly, it can result in paralysis.
