Childhood Signs and Difficulties

A mother who succumbs to an illness or a stressful situation especially in the first three months of pregnancy is likely to give birth to a child with a developmental problem and hence follow up is important.

Be keen when the following things happen:-

Prolonged labor
Difficult deliveries
lack of or a delay cry

Signs in early childhood include:

  • Early feeding difficulties 
  • Delayed development 
  • Poor muscle control 
  • Muscle spasms 
  • Lack of coordination 

Although the damage to the brain will not become worse, the effect on the body can become more obvious with age, and physical deformities can develop. Early detection and management can reduce the severity of the effects of the disability.
