Perinatal and neonatal asphyxia is the lack of oxygen at delivery. It can lead to severe brain and organ damage in newborns that result in devastating life-long cognitive disorders and possible fatalities. Perinatal and neonatal asphyxia can result in minimal brain-damage such as attention deficit disorder (ADD) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), or more severe brain damage like the eventual development of schizophrenia and life-long functional psychotic episodes.

The decreased oxygen intake of perinatal and neonatal asphyxia can create chemical changes in your baby’s body that include low levels of oxygen and excess acid build-up. These can result in abnormal skin color, low heart rate, weak muscle tone, difficulty breathing, and meconium tainted amniotic fluid in addition to brain damage.
