Parents sue after after delivery errors cause brain injuries

It's the most magical time of a woman's life -- the moment when she finally gets to see and hold the child that she has been growing, loving and anticipating for 40 long weeks. For some in Oregon and other states, that moment is tainted with the realization that the baby she has longed for is not the healthy, happy infant she expected. Even more crushing is the discovery that the medical complications the child is crippled with were not developmental flaws but were instead caused by delivery errors. One mother is dealing with these horrible realizations after her healthy son was born with severe brain injuries, allegedly due to delivery errors.
