Understanding The Causes Of Birth Injuries

birth injuriesA blessed event involving the birth of a child can quickly turn to tragedy. During the emotional time involving the birth of your child, medical professionals must maintain the highest standards of care. Any number of things can go wrong in the blink of an eye, requiring swift medical intervention. Even before labor begins, proper medical care is essential to anticipating and treating potential problems.

Oversights can lead to lifelong health consequences for both mother and child. Common causes of preventable birth injuries include:

  • Inadequate fetal monitoring
  • Failure to promptly order a C-section
  • Failure to identify and respond to fetal distress
  • Medication errors involving Pitocin and other drugs
  • Negligent forceps or vacuum delivery

Any of these errors can leave your child with serious complications, including brain injuries, cerebral palsy and spinal cord injuries. They can also result in the tragic loss of your newborn.
