(from the NHS)Cerebral palsy can happen if*a baby's*brain does not develop normally while they're in the womb, or is*damaged during or soon after birth.
Causes of cerebral palsy include:

bleeding in the baby's brain or reduced blood and oxygen supply to their brain

the brain temporarily*not getting enough*oxygen (asphyxiation) during a*difficult birth

meningitis

a*serious head injury

But in many cases,*the exact cause is not clear.*
