My sisters daughter did.  She was only born 3 weeks ago, she spent a week in the NICU and had seizures so is now on medication and seems to be doing ok.  Time will only tell what the implications are if any

Yep.  Brady was born with severe brain damage...he's now almost 5 years old.

Maybe? We didn't discover anything until 5 months old though.

My son did not have brain injuries when he was born, but he did have congenital brain defects. A portion of his brain just never formed. He will be 9 in December.

Yes. Though they aren't sure if it happened inutero or during his birth.

Not at birth,when Thor was 6 weeks old he survived multiple strokes. He is now 17YO. After the stokes the hospital tried saying it was birth related,I say NO because he spent 3 weeks in NICU for his cardiac issue and not once was any brain injury/neuro defect brought up.
