The below information is taken from the NHS website:
Cerebral palsy is the name for a group of lifelong conditions that affect movement and co-ordination, caused by a problem with the brain that occurs before, during or soon after birth.
Symptoms of cerebral palsy
The symptoms of cerebral palsy aren't usually obvious just after a baby is born. They normally become noticeable during the first two or three years of a child's life.
Symptoms can include:
Delays in reaching development milestones – for example, not sitting by eight months or not walking by 18 months
Seeming too stiff or too floppy
Weak arms or legs
Fidgety, jerky or clumsy movements
Random, uncontrolled movements
Walking on tip-toes
Arange of other problems – such as swallowing difficulties, speaking problems, vision problems and learning disabilities
Causes of cerebral palsy
Cerebral palsy can occur if a baby's brain doesn't develop normally while in the womb, or is damaged during or soon after birth.
Causes of cerebral palsy include:
Bleeding in the baby's brain or reduced Blood and oxygen supply to their brain
An infection caught by the mother during pregnancy
The brain temporarily not getting enough oxygen (asphyxiation) during a difficult birth
A serious head injury
But in many cases, the exact cause isn't clear.
