Note: Because birth injuries are quite rare, this table includes three years of data.  Some birth injuries associated 
with this indicator might be minor or not preventable by hospital practitioners.
The definition of this indicator changed in late 2003.  Prior to October 2003, "head molding" might have been included 
in the indicator.  "Newborn head molding" is an abnormal head shape that occurs from pressure on the baby's head 
during delivery.  This is not a serious condition and the baby's head often returns to its normal shape in a few days.
