Heavy birth were? Was the child hurt? What to do
To my great regret, for today we very often hear from young moms such phrases as "heavy births", "baby suffered", etc. Traumas in children can be very different. The same as with women. Alas, this misfortune can happen to anyone. How do the mother and child feel if there were really serious births? Was the child hurt? If yes, then it means that it is already bad. A crumb - physically. Mother - morally.
Heavy birth were? Was the child hurt? Who is guilty?
So, if a woman had heavy births, the baby was hurt, everything around, of course, seems simply awful. Of course, relatives and relatives of the mother will immediately start looking for the guilty. Earlier births were divided by researchers into "good" and "bad" depending on their duration, the use of drugs, the level of interventions and the type of delivery. These characteristics are objective. Today, this issue is considered from the side of subjective characteristics.
Heavy births were, the baby was hurt ... Why could this happen? Firstly, because of how quickly events began to develop. In the event that the situation suddenly changed from auspicious to dangerous, if no one had time to explain the woman in childbirth, what is happening to her, this can lead to negative consequences.
Secondly, problems could arise if the woman was limited in movement, that is, if everything that happened from her was in no way dependent. The use of general anesthesia could aggravate the situation. In the future, crumbs may experience all sorts of delays in the formation of muscles, in the development of the psyche. It can slow down breathing and heartbeat, lack of motor activity, sensitivity and muscle strength, there is a lag in weight.
Third, it could be the consequences of a severe pregnancy, the threat of its interruption, anomalies in the development of the fetus. Even the mood of a woman (if she is visited by thoughts about a possible dysfunctional outcome) can provoke unsuccessful births. In short, the reasons can be different.
Consequences of severe labor
And the results are also different. If a woman has a heavy birth, the baby has suffered, the trauma can be light (like a slight stretch, which can later lead to small tumors that can be easily eliminated with warming and massage).
However, everything can be much more serious. Sometimes, children are born cyanotic color, lifeless, with severe injuries to the digestive tract and the central nervous system, etc. In such cases, babies do not always survive. Or for several weeks are between life and death. However, even surviving, children grow weak, painful.
In especially severe cases, such children must be fed with special equipment. Thus the child can vomit. Accordingly, we must also install a gastric tube to remove the liquid from the stomach.
Children for a long time can not hold their heads, sit, roll over, react to the voice. They react only when they are touched. In general, the consequences can be really terrible.
Birth injuries of the head
So, enough common injuries are asphyxiation, bruises, intoxication. All this has a very negative impact on the physical and intellectual development of the child.
Most often, however, in such difficult situations the child's head suffers. So, if the heavy birth was, the baby suffered - the craniocerebral trauma should be feared first. This is the main cause of death and disability in childhood. Such damage requires special guidance, which is markedly different from the one adopted. For this type of injury characterized by prolonged squeezing of the head, aspiration of amniotic fluid, hypoxia with placental abruption, etc.
Treatment of birth injuries to the head for a long time was considered to be unpromising. Only with the advent of new diagnostic methods in the second half of the twentieth century, little progress has been made.
In a word, in the event that the birth was severe, the baby was injured, the craniocerebral injury, or any other trauma was found - he clearly needed the help of good specialists. Of course, care for these children and their treatment have certain characteristics. They must be provided with a sparing regime. And if the state is too heavy, it is in a specialized department. If there is a violation of breathing, repeated asphyxia and convulsions, the child should not be moved. Swaddling, feeding and care procedures are carried out in the crib.
