Birthing is one of the most precarious times for a woman. Despite enormous technological advances in the care and treatment of both mother and baby, there are still several factors that can increase the risk factors of a birth injury occurring.

Birth injury risk factors include:

  • Size and position of the baby
  • Cephalopelvic disproportion (CPD)
  • Prolonged labor or childbirth
  • Improper monitoring
  • Delayed delivery
