My son's delivery was normal without using any tools and was a full term 7.6 lbs baby. No issues that we noticed on the day of and next day when we came home until we noticed him having siezures. We ran to the emergency and there he was diagnosed with blood hemorrhage in left front side of his brain. There was blood in fuild between brain and outerside as well. The hospital treated him with the siezure medications and was under close watch for head measurement for any more damage. He was on ventilation for a week and on top of that after he was desaturating. No one is able to identify the cause of it. Luckily it was started to heal by itself. By 6 months all the blood was gone and it was just a bit swollen. Just like all other babies his milestones are reaching how its suppose to be and now he is a handful, smart, and lovely kid.
Hope your little princess is much better now as she is much older. Can you please let me know how she would behave as in personality wise? Is she walking and talking fine?
Our prayers are with these little angles.

Hi, i have a baby boy, born at 25 weeks, he is prem. but he started to smile when he was 8 months but he cant sit or crowl or walk and he is 11 months. i took him to physio and specialist. he is going to crech now to play with other kids and he is doing fine since he is started the crech. now he can smile and say " mbrrr" and laugh, the creches also helps our children, because when he is at home he cant hear loader noise and other kids voices can help a lot. i wont give up because he is developing slow. i understand your situation becuase is similar to mine.

I would like to tell all of you that whenever anything unusual happens to an otherwise healthy baby, you MUST look at the connection to vaccines. My grand-daughter bled in her brain and had a stroke and we did not know why. After many tears and many books, articles and correspondence with dedicated physicians, we learned that the antibiotics in vaccines can cause destruction of vitamin K (which is essential for proper blood clotting). The antibiotics destroy the gut flora which disables the vitamin K production thus putting the infant into harm's way. Most pediatricians are clueless and even if they knew they would not tell you since nearly every doctor has been brainwashed into accepting vaccines as good - trust me they are not. You don't have to take my word for it, research it yourself. Go to www.nvic.org or simply google vaccine injury. I pray every day that more parents will awaken to the truth about vaccines. Nothing will awaken you faster than seeing your beloved grand-daughter near death. God bless and keep your babies safe!

my daughter was born with a level 1 brain bleedfreshen is myy 4th child, only c section. They don't know why she had the brain bleed but when she was born she went to the NICU right away for a cooling procedure which In essence gave her hypothermia store dice the effects of the bleeding. She is now 5 weeks old and seems to be tracking with the normal milestones. We saw our neurologist last week and he said only time will tell but she looks good now. We go to a developmental specialiat next week. I agree with a lot of the post, I try to live in today and the blessing that my daughter is alive and well today. I also wabout about the future as well and would like to find out how everything turned out for you and your families. Sincerely

Hi I gave birth to a 24 week old baby girl who is in NICU since last 3 weeks, she has suffered grade 4/5 bleed on left side and garde 2 on rt side with ventricles enlarging very much on rt side and causing the brain to sqoosh while the left side is almost completely damaged leaving a hole and a slight rim of brain. she is off ventilator breathing on her own via minimal support of CPAP, tolerating feeds via mouth tube, had 7 transfusions, but doing so well that Drs are amazed . about her brain bleeds they tell me most likely she will have severe disability, in wheel chair, may not talk, walk, see or hear. would be like a vegetable. any hopes, any good stories of survival. pls reply.

hello all, today is one of the worst days as I have been thinking what wrong I did to go into this early labor and finally I think I have solved the mystery. I went thru the whole week's detail b/f my lovely daughter was born and although I had GBS and this could contribute to it as well, yes I has SI 3 days b/f I went into labor but the main thing was the huge craving for a traditional food called haleem which is like a porridge made from wheat, barley and other lentils, kind of harrisa. I ate that on wed 3 times, then on Thursday 3 times and Friday twice. the only sign of labour I had was huge pressure in my rectum. Like I was constipated. Now today I googled barley and pre term labour I found out that it causes labour and enzyme in it relaxes uterus, I am devastated, I am ready to kill my self knowing that I am the cause of my daughter's early birth , severe grade 4/5 bleed and potential severe disabilities, how will I forgive myself, my husband says it meant to be but I know now its me my craving which caused this.....now all my life I will see my disabled daughter and know its me who caused it.

Hi ladies, I'm 32 weeks. Everything was fine until my last scan (last friday). My ob just found that my son had blood outside of this brain and that the size of his head is measuring 2 weeks ahead of the rest of the body. He also have his celebral median line pushed towards the right side (i dnt know if this makes sense to you guys...) I keep crying and don't know what to think or do about it. The doctors keep telling me that it's not my fault but I can't stop feeling guilty. I'm really confused about my son's future health... I'm having hard time to realize what's happening since everything was JUST fine until now.
