This medical exhibit depicts a left-side shoulder dystocia injury of an African-American infant during delivery. The first illustration shows a mid-sagittal cut-away view of the mother with baby's head crowning through the birth canal. The remaining two graphics illustrate the injury to the infant's brachial plexus nerves in the neck as the baby's shoulder catches on the mother's pubic symphysis during vaginal delivery. The brachial plexus is shown being pulled and stretched as the head is delivered.
