Emotional Trauma for Parents of a Baby with Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy is a condition that can severely affect a baby’s muscle growth and ability to control its movements later in life. It does this by affecting the baby’s brain and nervous system. While this can be extremely uncomfortable for the baby, the Driscoll Firm knows that it can also result in emotional trauma for the baby’s parents, and even the child as it grows up.

Emotional Effects of Your Baby’s Condition on You

Every parent will respond differently to a serious condition affecting their baby, not to mention the fact that these emotions will likely change over time. Some of the more common emotional issues that parents of babies with cerebral palsy experience include:

  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Loss of sleep
  • Depression
  • Nightmares
  • Mood swings

You might find yourself experiencing any of these emotions after you have a baby born with cerebral palsy. Unfortunately for parents with babies who have this condition as a result of a medical professional’s negligence, these emotions are usually heightened.
