In brief: Genetic, maternal
There are several conditions associated with cerebral palsy.
There may be brain abnormalities from genetic or chromosomal abnormalities. There may be a stroke which causes hemiplegia or one side of the body involved. The mother may have a clotting disorder causing a blood clot. The child might have a thyroid disorder.
