Risk Factors for Stroke During Labor and Delivery
Fetal stroke (sometimes called an “infarct”) can occur at any point during gestation, including during labor and delivery. A stroke refers to a blockage of the blood supply to the brain.
Risk factors that can lead to fetal stroke during labor and delivery include:
- Head trauma
- Gestational diabetes
- Placental abruption
- Blood clot formation within a blood vessel
- Hemorrhaging / internal bleeding
- Birth asphyxia / Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE)
Induced Labor and Intrapartum Stroke / Infarct
Induction during delivery can also lead to fetal stroke. Drugs such as Pitocin and Cytotec are often used to induce labor and can lead to injuries to the unborn baby, including HIE and stroke. The results of a fetal stroke—also referred to as cerebrovascular accident or brain infarct—can be severe.
Results of intrapartum stroke include:
- Developmental difficulties
- Cerebral palsy
- Mental retardation
