Overview

Effective measures for the primary prevention of cerebral palsy include avoiding preterm birth, avoiding complicated delivery and avoiding head trauma in the neonate.

Primary Prevention

During pregnancy

During delivery

  • Proper monitoring of fetal and mother vitals during delivery.[2]
  • Early detection of the factors that might contribute complicated delivery such as narrow pelvis.
  • Delayed separation of the umbilical cord especially after complicated deliveries.

After delivery
