Erb’s Palsy And Shoulder Dystocia
Shoulder dystocia occurs when birthing tools such as the forceps and vacuum are misused during labor and delivery, possibly causing nerve damage to the brachial plexus in the shoulder. Use of these tools may be necessary when a baby’s shoulders get stuck in the vaginal canal or behind the mother’s pelvis.
In these cases, doctors and delivery teams have specific duties and protocols that should be followed to safely deliver the baby. When there is a deviation or the delivery team does not notice in a timely manner that the baby’s oxygen supply is being compromised, Erb’s palsy or even cerebral palsy can result. The entire delivery team must be quick and organized to deliver the baby safely.
