You Didn’t Expect This…No parent wants to see their newborn injured, sick or in pain. It is even worse when it could have been prevented!
Infants are the most precious gifts. Obstetricians begin caring for them before they are born, by monitoring and caring for expectant mothers. Unfortunately, pregnancy is a very vulnerable time for both the mother and her unborn child and serious birth injuries occur in about 3 of every 100 births. When doctors fail to effectively diagnose or treat complications or emergency situations during pregnancy and delivery, the babies can suffer lifelong consequences.
What constitutes a “birth injury”? Legally, it is defined as damage sustained during the birthing process. Just to name a few of the many risks to infants during delivery:
Bone fractures, including broken arms and collar bones
