Uncovering the truth about birthing errors. Did you know cerebral palsy can arise from a mismanaged labor or inappropriate methods of delivery that cause lack of oxygen, bleeding, head trauma, or other injury to a newborn child? We actively encourage greater investment in the research of developmental disorders and exploration of treatment options.
While not every child's cerebral palsy is caused by medical negligence (Learn More: Cerebral Palsy Causes), we know the tragedy families endure when a doctor's error results in a birth injury. Families are often overwhelmed by both medical and legal questions.

"After all the information came out, I was bitter. But eventually I put it in my heart to forgive. It's not about the money, but it helps a lot, because brain injury causes a lot of problems that you don't know about early on."
"The saddest moment came when Ken told us that if Lizzy had been born any time between when I came in at 7 a.m. until 10 p.m., she would be fine. The doctor had misread the fetal monitoring strips. She had made a mistake."
