    Researchers think that bleeding in vaginally delivered babies occurs as the infant's still-flexible skull is compressed while passing through the birth canal. UNC-CH physicians noted that the hemorrhages they observed tended to be tiny and concentrated near the back of the brain. By contrast, bleeding associated with shaken baby syndrome tends to cover a larger area and is most often found at the top of the brain.
