When a Pennsylvania family welcomes a child, it is supposed to be a joyous occasion. A family is supposed to be thrilled at the possibilities that lay ahead for the new little baby. However, when a birth injury -- like cerebral palsy -- threatens the health and welfare of the child, parents can become distraught. Birth injuries often occur when doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals make critical errors during the birthing process. Had the mistakes not been made, the child may have a very different life.
