Did your baby get starved of oxygen?

by Jamse
(Uk)

My baby now two and a half had a very traumatic birth and now has oral textile and maybe more spds. I have heard from others that either stopped breathing or weren't given oxygen long enough or quick enough and they also have spd.


I just wondered how many more could link this

Also does anyone know of any help in uk I could get?
Thank you

SPD
by: Anonymous

my son was low on oxygen for the first 24 hours or so after a messy birth. he was placed in high dependency after panting and struggling to breath

we are just discovering why he is having trouble with school work as he is 10 now. he has been diagnosed with SPD

our younger son cruises through his homework, it is very distressing to see the older one struggle.

Thank you for your responses comments on here.
I find it all so interesting and with that I was one of these extremely clever people who could actually set up a facility to research and help with this.
It's a big enough fight in the uk to get any help at all. Still fighting for an assessment as 'experts' say it is an age thing and something that will be grown out of. Yet I speak to psychologist/psychotherapists and they tell me it's most likely from my little ones birth trauma.

Ventilator

My son was taken off his ventilator at 5 days old, after trial and error of denying him oxygen. It is also important to note that he was given morphine for recovery of his heart surgery at days old. I'm not sure if it was the lack of oxygen, medicines, or vaccinations but have heard theories of all. My son will be 4 years in sept. We became concerned at 15 Mos or so and he has been seen spech, physical and occupational therapy for almost 2 years.

I have a 4 year old who had a traumatic birth as the cord was wrapped around her neck twice. They took her out c section..her hands fingers feet toes all purpl. She also had bruising around her neck from the cords. She has just been diagnosed with spd and oral and tactile sensory issues. I wonder if the lack of oxygen added or caused this.

Starved of oxygen
by: Anonymous

I have to say yes it does have an affect. I am a mother of four in California. My youngest boy was spontaneous vaginal delivery. At the time the epidural was placed my oxygen level dropped and put my son in distress. I delivered but didn’t think much of the incident. Until we started to notice that he wasn’t reaching certain milestones. He is now seven and has been diagnosed with restless leg syndrome, sensory processing disorder and auditory processing and dyslexia. Several of the doctors that evaluated him believed that the lack of oxygen had a neurological affect. He is now receiving occupational, speech, and physical therapy along with psychotherapy for social emotional support. It was a long rough road getting a diagnosis and help. I wish you the best and be persistent.

I know exactly what you are going through. My sisters girl also had traumatic birth and has add I believe hospitals medical experts want us to believe its hereditary so they don't have to accept responsibility

I am very interested in how many people respond to this.

Take care and your child is very special and very lucky to have been born to you.

no oxygen and spd
by: Anonymous

my baby did. he had rsv at 2 months and by the time the sitter called me he was at 50% oxygen. i am told they dont know if that affected him or not. he is extremely smart but has spd, possiby adhd and sometimes i think maybe odd. he is now 3. i have always wondered if that is the issue and it just tears me up inside. my little guy has such a hard time with things- loud noises, busy rooms, being washed or putting on lotion, eating, etc, etc. it goes on and on.
