       Shaken baby syndrome occurs when a baby is violently shaken, thrown, or slammed, causing the baby's head to move forward and backward rapidly. This movement causes the brain to hit the sides of the skull forcefully, leading to bleeding in the eyes and injury and bleeding in the brain. Brain injury and bleeding can cause increased pressure in the brain. Increased pressure in the brain can lead to serious, permanent brain damage. Babies who have trouble breathing or who stop breathing during an episode of being shaken, slammed, or thrown may have more brain damage.

The resources and services on this page are designed to help you understand a variety of issues surrounding brain injury due to shaken baby syndrome. Also included are links to additional information and resources.
