What is Cerebral Palsy?

Cerebral Palsy is the general term for several neurological conditions that affect movement and co-ordination. Neurological conditions are caused by problems in the brain and nervous system. Cerebral Palsy is caused by a problem in the part of the brain responsible for controlling muscles. The condition can occur if the brain develops abnormally or is damaged before, during or shortly after birth.

Causes of Cerebral Palsy include:

  • An infection caught by the mother during pregnancy
  • A difficult or premature birth
  • Bleeding in the baby’s brain
  • Changes in the genes that affect the brain’s development

In some cases, medical negligence or errors in care during pregnancy or childbirth can cause brain damage and lead to cerebral palsy. Examples of these include:                                                                                                                                                                                                                                

  • Poor treatment of maternal health conditions during the pregnancy

  • Medical errors or delayed delivery during birth resulting in the baby being deprived of oxygen

  • Medical errors during a forceps delivery, leading to injury to the baby’s head

  • Failure to diagnose or treat infections or other pregnancy illnesses
