During the course of your pregnancy, you probably fantasized about what your child would be like. You may have wondered what kind of person your child would turn into, along with what kind of life he or she would lead. If so, you aren't alone. Nearly every parent thinks about these things as they await the arrival of the newest addition to their families. Like most other Texas parents, you also had your share of worries, including how the labor and delivery would go.
With all of the technology and advancements in medicine, you would think that safely delivering a baby would happen every time. Unfortunately, it doesn't always happen. Infants suffer a myriad of injuries as the result of substandard care from the doctors their mothers and fathers trusted.
When the joy of childbirth turned into a terrifying emergency, your only thought was for your baby. How could something so routine and natural go so terribly wrong? Would the trauma of the difficult delivery result in lifelong injuries, disabilities and suffering?
Discovering that your child suffered an injury during birth was probably a shock, but now your focus is on finding the best care you can for your baby. Depending on the kind and extent of injury, you may be looking at a lifetime of intense care or, at the other end of the spectrum, special services to assist with mobility, learning issues or other disabilities.
