We all know how terrifying it is when we hear about a baby suffering a birth injury. Imagine how the parents feel when these injuries are serious. If you or someone you know has had a child that has suffered a birth injury, you should be concerned with the possibility of that child suffering from a condition known as intracranial hemorrhage.
This condition is caused by bleeding in the brain and is normally found in premature infants. Intracranial hemorrhage takes place when a blood vessel within the skull ruptures and affects the vital blood flow to the baby’s brain. In this scenario, the brain is not getting a sufficient amount of oxygen which can cause a serious injury to the baby.
If you have a newborn and suspect the possibility that your child has suffered a birth injury, you should look for symptoms, such as the baby appearing lethargic, poor feeding and the appearance of seizures. All of these symptoms should be taken serious and could be a sign that your baby is suffering from intracranial hemorrhage.
