Heavy labor was? The baby suffered? What to do
Unfortunately, today we often hear from young mothers phrases such as "heavy baby", "child hurt", etc. Injuries in children can be very different. In the same way as women. Alas, such misfortune could happen to anyone. How do you feel mother and child in that case really difficult the birth was? The baby suffered? If so, that's bad. Baby – physically. Mother mentally.
Heavy labor was? The baby suffered? Who is to blame?
So, if a woman has a difficult birth was that the baby was injured, all around, of course, just seems terrible. Of course, friends and relatives of the mother immediately start looking for the perpetrators. Earlier births were divided by the researchers into "good" and "bad" depending on their duration, use of medicines, interventions and type of delivery. These characteristics are objective. Today this question is considered from the subjective characteristics.
Heavy labor was that the baby was not injured... Why this could happen? First, because of how quickly began to develop. In that case, if the situation suddenly changed from favorable at dangerous if no one had time to explain to the mother what was happening to her, it can lead to negative consequences.
Second, problems could arise if the woman was restricted in movement, that is, if all the events from it does not depend. The use of General anesthesia could exacerbate the situation. Further, the baby can be all sorts of delays in the formation of muscles, the development of the psyche. Can slow down breathing and heart rate, absent motor activity, sensitivity and muscle strength to be a lag in weight.
Thirdly, it could be the consequences of pregnancy, the threats of abortion, anomalies in fetal development. Even the mood of a woman (if her thoughts about the possible dysfunctional outcome) can cause unsuccessful delivery. In short, there may be several reasons.
The consequences of a difficult birth
And the results also are different. If a woman has a difficult birth was the baby injured, the injury can be mild (like a mild sprain, which could then lead to a small tumor, easily addressed by therapy and massages).
However, things can be much more serious. Sometimes, children are born bluish in color, lifeless, with severe damage to the digestive tract and CNS, etc. In such cases babies do not survive always. Or for several weeks between life and death. However, even the surviving children grow up weak and sickly.
In severe cases, these children have to eat with the help of special devices. Thus the child may be vomiting. Accordingly, it is necessary to install a gastric tube for the withdrawal of gastric fluid.
Children for a long time can not hold their head, sit, roll over, respond to the voice. They only react when they touch. In General, the consequences could be really terrible.
Generic head injury
So, fairly common injuries include suffocation, injuries, intoxication. All of this negatively affects physical and intellectual development of the child.
Most often, however, in such difficult situations, suffering infant head. So, if the heavy was in labor, the baby suffered a traumatic brain injury to be feared in the first place. This is the main cause of death and disability in childhood. Such injuries require special management, is markedly different from an accepted. For this type of injury characterized by prolonged compression of the head, aspiration of amniotic fluid, fetal hypoxia with placental abruption, etc.
Treatment of birth trauma to the head for a long time considered hopeless. Only with the advent of new diagnostic methods in the second half of the twentieth century there has been little progress.
In short, if heavy was in labor, the baby suffered traumatic brain or any other injury is discovered – he definitely needed the help of good people. Certainly, the care for these children and their treatment have certain characteristics. They must be provided a soft diet. And in too serious condition – being in a specialist unit. When breathing, repeated asphyxia and convulsions of the child can not be moved. Diapering, feeding and treatments are carried out in the crib.
