Cerebral palsy

Cerebral palsy

When a baby’s brain (‘cerebral’) is developing during pregnancy damage to the area of the brain that controls movement can occur. As the child develops it can be detected that the baby is not able to exhibit different movements properly (‘palsy’). The cause of this damage to the brain is yet unknown, however, it is found that babies born before the normal duration of pregnancy (‘preterm birth’), infection in the pregnant mother and mothers who smoke, indulge in alcohol or recreational drugs are more prone to bearing a child with cerebral palsy.
