Birth injuries are caused by physical harm or untreated illnesses around the time of birth. Treatment can help to manage long-term health effects and improve quality of life, but more severe injuries may leave babies with lifelong disabilities. If your doctor was negligent with their care during childbirth, it may be considered medical malpractice.

Leaky gut, also known as increased intestinal permeability, is a digestive disorder that develops when tight junctions loosen or become damaged, allowing undigested food, bacteria, or toxins to leak through the wall of the intestine. Therefore, a leaky gut can worsen the symptoms of autism and can cause problems with brain function.

Prenatal Ultrasounds and their Discoveries
The prevalence of autism spectrum disorder has progressively increased over the past few decades, with estimates that 1 in 68 individuals are affected by it. Research continues to work on identifying both the genetic and environmental factors that could lead to autism spectrum disorder in individuals. One factor that has been examined is prenatal ultrasounds. As medical technology has been advancing itself, the number of ultrasounds women have during pregnancy has increased substantially during the past several decades that some argue that previously established statistics are no longer available. A new study done by Boston University’s School of Public Health researchers found that the number of prenatal ultrasounds are not associated with the future development of autism spectrum disorder
