After a long labor, all you want to do is get back home and enjoy your new bundle of joy. As a parent, you probably just want to watch your little one sleep, stretch, and smile. However, you may not be able to take your eyes off your baby because you are worried that something is wrong.

Have you noticed that your child’s legs are stiff? Do your baby’s legs cross or appear to be in a scissor position when he or she is picked up? If you have observed any of these signs, you need to have a doctor examine your baby as soon as possible. Unfortunately, stiff and scissor-like legs are a warning sign of cerebral palsy. Before becoming too alarmed, look for other signs of cerebral palsy such as floppy limbs, overextended back and neck when held, and a head that tilts backwards when your baby is picked up.

If your son or daughter has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy in Kentucky, you should speak with a birth injury lawyer. The attorneys of Gray and White can investigate your case to determine if medical negligence during labor and delivery is to blame.
