One cause of early childhood seizures for affected kids in Florida was uncovered in a study by the University of Utah Health. Early infantile epileptic encephalopathy (EIEE) begins in the first months of life with seizures that medication is unable to stop. While uncommon, the condition still occurs in around 1.2 out of every 1,000 live births in the United States. Children born with EIEE experience intellectual disabilities, developmental delays and, often, early death.
For many Florida mothers, giving birth to a child is a physically and emotionally taxing event. Occasionally, there may be instances were a difficult delivery could actually cause harm to the infant. One commonly seen birth injury is brachial plexus birth palsy, also known as Erb's palsy.
