Our Hope

By sharing our story and our experiences with this birth injury we will hopefully educate people. Knowledge is power. Our hope is that you will read this blog, share it with your friends, and they will share with their friends. Then in some small way we have prevented other families from having to go through what we have.

Why Awareness Is SO Important

The UBPN posted a link that caught my attention.  Could not access the whole article but the abstract pretty much says it all.  The article was about a study done tracking incidences of OBPI before shoulder dystocia training for maternity staff and incidences post shoulder dystocia training.


Shoulder dystocia training was associated with a lower incidence of OBPI and the incidence of OBPI in births complicated by shoulder dystocia.

Here is the link to the abstract: http://www.ajog.org/article/S0002-9378%2811%2900066-4/abstract.  Unfortunately you have to join the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology to view the whole thing....

This is why I tell everyone to TALK about this!!  Talk to pregnant women you know!  Pregnant women talk to your physicians!  Everyone talk about this!  Spread the word!  Knowledge is POWER!!

So a child close to you does not have to go through THIS!
Or this!

Ok...off my soapbox for now.
