You will likely learn about a developmental delay from your child's pediatrician. As your child grows they are expected to meet certain milestones; when a baby turns over, when a baby turns over, when they start to crawl, start to talk, start to walk, etc.

When your child is delayed in meeting their developmental milestones you start to question the pediatrician about why there's a delay. Often, your pediatrician will not be eager to point a finger at your obstetrician or any other doctor. So, how then do you get an honest answer about why your child is delayed?

You need to have your medical records evaluated by experts in the field of obstetrics, neonatology and pediatric neurology. Only then can we determine what the likely cause of your child's problems are from.

Keep in mind that there may be many different explanations for your child's delays:
It could be genetic, or hereditary.

It could be from a lack of oxygen during the course of your labor and delivery.

It could be from distress during labor that went unrecognized causing diminished blood flow and oxygen to the baby.

Regardless of the cause, it needs to be investigated to rule in, or rule out the possible causes. How do you do that? Simple.

You ned to contact an experienced attorney who handles medical malpractice cases on a daily basis. Only then can you answer the question, "Why is my child developmentally delayed?"
