Factors that increase the risk of birth trauma

Getting ready for the birth of a baby is one of the most exciting times in the life of a new mother or father. While expectant parents can have all the baby supplies ready and the hospital bag packed, nothing can prepare them for the stress and grief that can occur in the delivery room. Birth trauma happens to relatively few newborns, with Medscape reporting that only six to eight infants will be injured for every 1,000 babies born, but those families that do experience this can be physically and emotionally damaged for life.

This is an unusual discrepancy-and one that researchers have yet to fully explain.
