BirthInjury.org is sponsored by the Midwest Brachial Plexus Network, Inc., a non-profit organization providing support and information to those touched by brachial plexus injury. Brachial plexus injury (bpi) is an injury that causes paralysis to one or both arms. Most bpi's happen during delivery of an infant, however trauma later in life may also result in a bpi. The injury can be temporary or it may cause a permanent disability. At this site you will find the most complete information about brachial plexus injury, available treatments, legal information, articles, FAQ and support services. We are dedicated to helping parents help their injured children. We also strive to provide information to the medical community so that doctors can prevent as many bpi's as possible and give prompt and accurate treatment when the injury does occur.
