The childbirth process should be a joyous time for families. Bringing a child into the world can be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and doctors, nurses and medical professionals have a responsibility to ensure that the birth process is as easy and safe as possible for expecting mothers. Unfortunately, injuries and trauma during the birthing process happen all too often in the U.S, and many children and families will suffer devastating and permanent injuries that can result in a lifetime of medical care and even death.
It is estimated that between 6 and 8 out of every 1,000 infants born in the United States will suffer from some type of birth injury. That means that nearly 28,000 people per year are born with some type of birth injury that will affect them for the rest of their lives.
