There are many things that can go wrong during the birth and labor process. The umbilical cord, for example, can become twisted or compressed or can wrap around a baby's neck, reducing or eliminating air flow to the baby’s brain. In some cases, the baby is too big to travel down the birth canal and an emergency cesarean section may be required. In some cases, the baby gets breeched or turns around, making it difficult to deliver the baby through the birth canal. In all of these cases, proper diagnosis and adequate response on the part of medical professionals can help save both the baby and the mother from harm. When staff act negligently, unfortunately, serious injury can occur.
During the birth and labor process, medical staff and obstetricians will typically work very hard to provide the best standard of medical care. Unfortunately, in cases where medical staff is negligent or reckless, serious birth injury can occur. Birth injuries can affect a child's and family’s quality of life permanently. Serious birth injuries can affect a child's mental and physical development and can affect a child's ability to fully grown to their potential.What Can Parents of Injured Children Do?
