A baby who suffers from an oxygen deprivation birth injury may continue to suffer as he or she gets older. Permanent conditions such as brain damage and cerebral palsy can result from oxygen deprivation during labor and delivery.

While some conditions, such as cerebral palsy, are incurable, it is still important to recognize the early symptoms of possible oxygen deprivation brain damage and to discuss your concerns with your pediatrician and a New York birth injury attorney.

The following are some symptoms that your child may exhibit in the days and weeks after birth if he or she suffered from oxygen deprivation at birth:
  • Difficulty waking up: while all newborns sleep for the vast majority of the day, most wake up to feed every few hours. 
  • Difficulty feeding: your baby may have continued trouble latching to the breast or bottle, sucking milk or swallowing.
  • Breathing problems
  • Seizures
  • Low Apgar scores immediately after birth

Many babies exhibit one or more of these symptoms and did not suffer from oxygen deprivation during birth. However, it is important to get a correct diagnosis of your child's condition so that you can get your child the proper medical treatment, and, if appropriate, pursue a legal recovery.

For more information about your child's rights if your child suffered from oxygen deprivation during a New York or New Jersey birth, please contact a New York City birth injury lawyer at 1-800-PAGAN-911 or via our online contact form for more information.
