Brain scan at birth?
Hi everyone, first time posting here so I'll give a little background if you don't mind taking the time.
We had twins in April 2010, born 8 weeks early by emergency c section. Our little girl was diagnosed with CP(spastic diplegia) in November 2011 & has since gone on to develop epilepsy in April 2012. Our Little boy had collapsed lungs after birth but after spending time in SCUBU he seemed ok. As he has developed he has always seemed slower than his sister & despite raising concerns at appointments we were always told it was either due to him being premature or just laid back & that he would catch up. He is now at 28 months & has been assessed with Global delay with the abilities of about a 12-16 month old child. This week we have been told he also has CP, despite us questioning this in the past due to his sisters history.
My question to the forum is that on a lot of the appointments we have had with specialists they have always asked if a brain scan was done after birth & what the results were. We have never been told if they had a scan & I was just wondering if anyone knows if this is a common practice for emergency c section births as it seems from the query's from the specialists they assumed it would have been done?
Thanks for taking time to read this, any input would be welcomed.
