Hi, does anyone have a child who was brain damaged due to neligence by the delivering OB? My little angel was dropped at delivery by the OB and sustained massive brain damage. As a result she has microcephaly, MR, CP, seizures and a host of other issues. It has been 7 years since this happened and I can't get past it. Sometimes the resentment just wells up in me and I just hate everything and everyone. My princess should be like every typically developing little girl and because of a doctor's negligence, and the nurse's too, my child is as she is. She's the most beautiful little girl that you have ever seen and I am not saying this because she is my child. It is heartbreaking! I need to know if there are other mothers with children like mine out there. I feel as though I am the only person that this has ever happened to. I cannot relate to other parents of special needs children, I feel so isolated.
