Although a doctor can be the direct cause of birth injury, they can also be your child's most important ally. Make sure that you alert your doctor if you believe there is a possibility your child was born with an injury, and let them know that you want your child to have a full evaluation. Push for all the tests that you feel need to be done to be completed, such as hearing, x-rays and blood work. Also be sure to ask for copies of all the results. The doctors are usually going to be willing to help you in any way possible, and if a doctor refuses, ask for a second opinion.
