Did your Baby’s Brain get Enough Oxygen at Birth?
During childbirth, it is crucial that a child’s brain gets sufficient oxygen. If a problem leads to asphyxia or hypoxia and ischemia — terms that essentially mean that the oxygen supply or blood flow are cut off — the end result for the child is brain damage. The child may suffer from cerebral palsy, developmental delay or mental retardation. The child will likely require lifelong care.

Casi II, has more than 21 years of experience working with children that are injured due to negligence during birth. We know how to hold the negligent parties responsible and get children the lifelong care that they need.
How Do Asphyxia and Hypoxia Happen?
A variety of problems that can lead to a baby’s oxygen supply being cut off. During pregnancy, and during labor and delivery, the baby receives oxygen from the utero-placental unit. Any compromise to this unit, such as a ruptured uterus, a placental abruption or a compressed umbilical cord, can cause the baby to suffer asphyxia or hypoxia-ischemia.
