What to Do if Your Child Has a Birth Injury

Having a baby is one of the most magical times in anyone's life. Imagining your life together as a new family, all the sweet moments of snuggling, all the first moments in your child's life, all the special days you'll spend together—all of these whimsical thoughts can fill anyone's heart with joy.
