When a woman in Newton has a baby, the last thing she will expect is for the newborn to have some sort of birth injury. Unfortunately, this can happen for a multitude of reasons. Sometimes, it is an unavoidable instance that nothing can be done about. In other cases, however, there might have been a sign that the infant was going to have some sort of problem unless there was medical intervention. Perhaps the medical professionals made a mistake during delivery. One possible issue that a newborn can face is a laryngeal nerve injury.
A baby's ability to breathe and swallow can be affected by laryngeal nerve injury. The reason for this injury frequently seems to be the head being rotated and flexed laterally when in the intrauterine posture. When the baby is being delivered, this kind of head movement can cause injury to the laryngeal nerve. In an estimated 10 percent of those who have paralysis of the vocal cords suffer from it because of birth trauma.
