Quality care at birth is one of the most important factors in reducing the neonatal morbidity and mortality. It is shown that 10% of the world’s population have disability due to various causes. 15-20% of them are affected by Cerebral Palsy. In India, the incidence is around 3/1000 live births. Prematurity and Birth Asphyxia are one of the major risk factors of cerebral palsy. Despite improved neonatal care and advanced technology, increasing incidence of CP has been observed, which is of great concern.
