If you are pregnant, please read the Expectant Parents Risks/Prevention page of my blog. My only purpose is to educate other parents so that their child doesn't have to go through the same things my son and our family have to due to a Brachial Plexus injury. Knowledge is power!! Please ask you doctor/nurses the important questions on that page and don't just assume they know what they are doing! Brachial Plexus Birth Injuries happen in 2-3 of every 1000 births!!!
Thanks for sharing the infor Britt.Hope your LO completely recovers .My nephew had the same problem too .He was a Vacuum baby .FOr him there was no shoulder injury but he use to keep his head aligned to lefside and not staright so my SIL and BIL had to take him for therapy every week for 1 year .Now he is OK .
It is so unfortunate that this happens to so many babies and there are ways to prevent it!! I am so happy to hear that your nephew is doing ok now! Steven is 10 months old and he goes to therapy every week as well. They are saying he will need therapy every week for at least 2 years and maybe longer, depending on his progress. Thank you so much for replying to my post!
