2 doctors agree
In brief: Unlikely
There are many things that can cause difficult labor, and many infants born during difficult labor and delivery who do not have cerebral palsy.

In brief: Maybe,maybe not
Data shows more than half of all CP patients had a normal pregnancy, labor and delivery and normal neonatal scores (APGAR).
There were things going on if you had a low FHR that suggest poor cord or placental function during labor.
