Many people are under the assumption that Cerebral Palsy (CP) is a rare condition, however it actually affects around 1 in every 400 children born in the UK. Although the majority of cases are caused by unfortunate circumstances arising during pregnancy, there are a small few avoidable instances of children being born with cerebral palsy because of the negligence of a medical professional.
If the upmost care and attention is not taken to ensure that the health of both mother and baby are well, then medical errors occur that can end in debilitating conditions such as cerebral palsy. Our infographic explores some of the most common medical errors that can cause otherwise avoidable CP in new born babies and the different types of CP that mothers may encounter.
