Thus, although there are still instances of obvious birth asphyxia causing brain damage, the majority of children with learning difficulties have, in retrospect, had an entirely normal and uneventful birth. Antenatal events, either inherent in the fetus or secondary to maternal or intrauterine problems, constitute the major cause of learning difficulties in children. Case study: possible antenatal asphyxia causing cerebral palsy Charlotte was Elsie’s third child. Elsie’s waters broke at 39 weeks’ gestation after an uncomplicated pregnancy and she self-referred to her normal maternity unit.

There are two broad categories of SGA babies: proportionate and disproportionate. The proportionate babies are just that: their length, weight and head circumference are proportionate. These babies may be those genetically small but normal; others may have suffered from intra-uterine malnutrition for some considerable time during pregnancy and have, therefore, been unable to grow to their full potential. This latter group has suffered chronic intra-uterine compromise. It is thought that the disproportionate SGA babies have suffered a shorter time of intra-uterine compromise.

Unfortunately some babies are heavily infected in the hours before birth and, despite timely antibiotics and full intensive care, do not survive or survive with major damage, often neurological. Hospital units should have clear antibiotic policies concerning which, and in what circumstances, antibiotics should be commenced.
