Severe Cerebral Palsy Testimony: A story of Baby Angelica

Severe Cerebral Palsy Testimony: A story of Baby Angelica

Baby Angelica was brought for treatment when she had severe cerebral palsy

We received baby Angelica [not real names] at our Jivadhara center in India when she was 2 and a half months shortly after being diagnosed with severe/spastic cerebral palsy.

Spastic cerebral palsy is a developmental disorder caused by damage to the brain before birth, during delivery, or within the first few years of life.

By the time we received her, she couldn’t make a sound, turn her head or even feed.

Our Doctors started her on treatment and the results…well, read on.

 

Birth History

  • Birth weight – 3.5 kg
  • H.C- 35.8cm
  • Baby cried immediately after birth
  • APGAR score – 8/9
  • Antenatal USG: Dilatation of the left lateral ventricle with compression of  the brain parenchyma.
  • Baby had Hyperbilirubinemia which is a condition in which there is too much bilirubin in the blood. When red blood cells break down, a substance called bilirubin is formed. Babies are not easily able to get rid of the bilirubin and it can build up in the blood and other tissues and fluids of the baby’s body.
  • Phototherapy done for 2  days
  • Maternal history: No PIH/GDM/other medical illness
