Even a normal course of pregnancy and the apparent good health of the mother and child do not guarantee a completely trouble-free birth. In some cases, babies are born with a non-standard appearance, and sometimes, there are more serious defects.
4-year-old Heidi Land is a happy and cheerful child. You wouldn’t immediately tell that the little girl had to go through so much. She was born with hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy, a rather rare condition that develops immediately before birth or directly in the process.

As a result, organic damage to the central nervous system may occur, which is sometimes manifested by cerebral palsy, epilepsy, and visual and auditory dysfunctions.
