If your baby fails to meet developmental milestones, discuss your concerns with a pediatrician and obtain the proper medical referrals. Then think back to the delivery process, was there anything that left you feeling concerned?
Each baby develops at his or her own pace, but some motor delays may indicate a more serious condition. If your baby or toddler is failing to meet developmental milestones, discuss your concerns with a pediatrician.
The hours from onset of labor to delivery of your baby are critical. A birth plan along with birthing classes are ways to prepare, but it can be hard to know exactly what is happening. For instance, Pitocin, a medication used to stimulate and augment labor, can cause too much cord or head compression.
