Common Causes

Spinal cord injuries during birth occur for many different reasons. In many cases, these injuries occur during difficult childbirth. This is especially true if there’s a prolonged delivery or the fetus is larger than normal.

Other times, the risk of an infant being born with a spinal cord injury can be higher if the fetus is not in a normal position shortly before being born. Abnormal fetal position can put extreme pressure on the infant’s neck or back and result in a spinal cord injury during delivery.
