Modern medico-legal evaluation of Neonatal Cerebral Palsy (NCP) demands recognition of Neonatal Hypoxic Ischaemic Encephalopathy (NHIE) as an indispensable proof of peri-partum fetal hypoxia. Without proven NHIE, modern jurisprudence should not even consider obstetric/paediatric liability of causative peri-partum hypoxia of negligence on the grounds of medically responsible fetal/newborn hypoxia leading to Cerebral Palsy. Peripartum hypoxia, which comprises intra-partum hypoxia may result in damage which may with varying degrees of time manifest itself with epilepsy, neuro-developmental delay, cognitive impairment or Cerebral Palsy and the full damage may not be completely assessable before 3-4 years of age. Court cases alleging obstetric/ neonatologist liability may not commence for a number of years, at times even decades after he birth.
