What causes a brachia plexus injury?

Any number of factors can contribute to a child's brachial plexus injury. Generally, this type of injury occurs when the child's neck and shoulder become lodged against the mother's pelvic bone during birth. This is called shoulder dystocia, and, if handled incorrectly, can damage the nerves in the brachial plexus.

Other risk factors include: 

  • Breach Births
  • The Baby's Size
  • Induced Birth
  • Use of Vacuum Extractor
  • Forceps During Delivery
