Birth Injuries Archives

Placenta problems are disastrous if they aren't promptly treated

The placenta plays an important role in pregnancy, but there are serious issues that can develop if there are problems with it. The placenta forms when a woman becomes pregnant. It attaches to the uterus and carries nutrition and oxygen to the developing baby through the umbilical cord. After the baby is born, the placenta detaches and passes through the birth canal. Unfortunately, things don't always happen as they should.

Birth injuries demand legal action against the negligent party

The labor and delivery process isn't easy on the woman or the baby. There are times when one or both of them might suffer an injury. Some injuries are considered part and parcel of the process but others are the result of medical malpractice. You likely don't have to do anything about the former; however, seeking compensation is possible with the latter.

Learning your baby was injured is difficult

No woman goes into labor assuming that her baby is going to be injured during the birth process. Unfortunately, this is just something that too many women have to deal with that they aren't prepared for. We know that your world probably seemed to stop when you got the news. As hard as it is, you still have to move forward, even if it is only a minute-by-minute task.

Birth injuries can take an emotional toll on the mother

Many people don't realize just how much having a difficult birth can impact the mother. This is a time that should be joyous; however, when you are having to deal with an injury to your newest family member, this isn't going to be so happy. These women often deal with emotional trauma that can seep into every aspect of their lives.

Problems occurring after birth can be very serious

It is all too easy to think of the dangers of childbirth as ending when the baby is born. This isn't the case. There are some issues that can creep up after the birth. These can be just as serious as those that do happen during labor and delivery. All women who are preparing for childbirth should find out some of the basic things to expect in the days following birth.

Common types of birth injuries and their causes

You've spent 9 months eagerly anticipating the arrival of your new baby. All at once, though, your world changes forever when your infant son or daughter suffers a serious birth injury, leaving your tiny newborn in pain and suffering, or even with permanent -- and often life-changing -- damage. What, exactly, are these traumatic birth injuries? Simply put, they're injuries that occur before, during or immediately after labor and delivery. However, there's nothing "simple" about birth trauma when your child's health or very life is at stake.

New mothers might suffer from serious birth injuries

Many people think of birth injuries as those that impact the baby; however, as we've discussed in previous blogs like last week's blog, there are also birth injuries that impact the mother. These birth injuries are very serious. In some cases, the mother might not be able to care for her child without help because of her injury. This is simply inexcusable.

Did a brain injury at birth lead to your child's cerebral palsy?

Having a child can cause you to experience a great deal of euphoria. You may only imagine the wonderful activities in which you will participate and experiences you will enjoy with your child. However, after his or her birth, you may experience a feeling of dismay after learning your child has suffered a brain injury.

Beware the dangers that come with C-sections

Many women in this country deliver their children via C-sections. In fact, this is the most common surgical procedure in the United States. What some women might not know is that a C-section can put them at risk of complications if they have to have a hysterectomy later in life. This is something that could turn a difficult situation into one that is even more serious.

Serious problems can occur during birth, don't suffer in silence

A woman who suffers a traumatic birth will likely find that the trauma of the birth is only aspect of life that she will have trouble dealing with. Oftentimes, these women are left to suffer in silence because the medical community is largely silent on these issues.
