The investigation, which was performed by USA TODAY, found that with better care, about half of the birth-related injuries to mothers could be reduced or eliminated, and nearly half of the deaths [...]

By |August 2nd, 2018|Birth Injury, medical malpractice|0 Comments

The risks for a cesarean delivery (c-sections) for both mothers and infants are well-documented. They include diabetes, asthma, and other breathing problems for the infant; and infection, pelvic pain, blood clots, cardiac complications and more for the mother. Even so, this procedure has historically been performed more in New Jersey than in most other states.

Birth Injury, Brain Injury, and Dopamine

By |February 16th, 2018|Birth Injury, Brain Injuries, medical malpractice|0 Comments

Although research shows that mental health problems are often caused by a complicated equation of genetic vulnerability factors and traumatic or negative life experiences, a new theory is evolving. According to a new study, babies that are born prematurely and who also sustain small brain injuries at birth are more likely to have lower levels of dopamine as adults. Dopamine, a neurotransmitter, is associated with motivation, attention, concentration, and enjoyment. When levels of this chemical are [...]
