The baby was delivered on June 6, 2014, after hours of decelerations and diminished variability. Experts concluded that the child should have qualified for an earlier cesarean section after overwhelming signs of fetal distress and intrapartum hypoxia.

The baby was born vaginally without breathing effort, cyanotic, hypotonic, and presence of meconium. Despite receiving therapeutic hypothermia, the child has the following diagnoses: spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy, severe hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy, visual impairment, fed via g-tube, treatment-resistant seizures, torticollis, significant global developmental delays, and cannot speak or sit up on her own.
