I Was Told My Baby Has IUGR-What’s That?

Posted by Frank Spector | Apr 03, 2014 | 0 Comments

During prenatal care, an ultrasound can tell whether your baby is growing normally.  The ultrasound measures the head, stomach and limbs.

Sometimes, there is a sign that the baby is not growing properly. This is called intrauterine growth restriction or IUGR.  The main cause is that the placenta may not be providing enough nourishment to the baby, especially in the later part of the pregnancy known as the third trimester.

Doctors have to carefully monitor IUGR and have to decide whether or not the pregnancy should continue or whether a C-section should be done.

IUGR can result in a stillbirth or in a baby born with brain damage.

If your baby has injuries from IUGR, call us toll free at 1-800-299-HURT.
