What Causes Seizures in Newborns? Find Legal Help Here
Seizures in newborns can not only be terrifying for the parents, they can also be damaging to the baby’s brain. After waiting for what seems like a lifetime for the birth of a child, neonatal seizures can throw the whole family for a loop. Neonatal seizures are seen in 1 in every 2 children born with cerebral palsy, a condition that was once thought to have no discernible cause until it was discovered that birth injury prior or during delivery may cause some forms of cerebral palsy. Seizures happen due to errant brain chemistry, injury or infection of brain cells, and they can be sporadic or regular, happening at intervals over the course of the day. If your child was born with neonatal seizures with no history of epilepsy in the family, they may have suffered from the aftereffects of physician negligence, a case that calls for filing a medical malpractice lawsuit in order to recover money damages and seek closure, something we’d be glad to help you with.

What Can Cause Seizures in Newborns?
Decrease in oxygen levels at the time of birth causes a medical condition called hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy, which is the number 1 cause of neonatal seizures. The lack of sufficient oxygen is usually due to hypoxia which means that there are low levels of oxygen in the blood. In addition, low or decreased flow of blood in the brain which is called ischemia is common when babies suffer birth injury due to the improper use of forceps or vacuum pump to remove the baby from the birth canal. In addition, mothers with high blood pressure during pregnancy, known as preeclampsia, may give birth to children with seizures due to the restriction of blood vessels that are responsible for the flow of blood to the unborn fetus.
