Post My grandsons clavicle broke during birth

Has anyone heard of this happening before and how long does it take to heal?

It isn't time that heals all wounds, it's what you do with that time. Dr. Phil

I have a friend whose collarbone broke when she was born, but I'm not sure how long it took to heal or anything. She is 27 and fine now though.

My son broke his collar bone at 18 months when he tried to lean and reach the dog. The dog moved and my son fell. We were told not to lift him under that arm (not that you'd lift a newborn that way) and to pin a colorful square of fabric to his clothes near the shoulder on the affected side to remind everyone to be careful with that shoulder. It seemed to heal very quickly, in a matter of 2 weeks.

I don't know how common this injury is in newborns.

Hope this helps a little. Barbara
