The first question is what are the factors that raise the risk of cerebral palsy (CP)?

1. Labor and delivery problems.

2. Premature baby.

2. Low birth weight – less that 5 lbs 7.5 oz.

3. Do not cry for 5 minutes after delivery.

4. Brain hemorrhage.

5. On a ventilator for more than 4 weeks.

6 Apgar scote of 0 to 3.

7. Breech birth.

8. Problems during pregnancy such as vaginal bleeding after the 6th month.

If you know a child who may be suufering from cerebral palsy check to see if any of these situations arose during delivery.
