When Can a Birth Injury Problem Amount to Medical Negligence?

Bringing a child into the world is one of the greatest experiences a mother can experience. After nine months of having this life develop within you a bond develops that seems to have been the first signs of love on this planet. This divine experience is both revered and respected since it is how we all came into this world.

I am grateful that with today's modern medicine the chances of successfully giving birth are much higher than they were 100 years ago. Though the majority of mothers go through child birth without major complications, there are still a handful of families that have some trouble.

I pray for these families, and my heart goes out to them.

In this article I would like to these complications...

What are these medical complications and when can they amount to medical negligence? I intend to look at the most common complications and will be separating them into complications for the 'mother' and those for the 'baby.'

Medical Problems With The Mother

The most common forms of injury to the mother include:

- Vaginal tears
- Episiotomy Complications
- Caesarian Sections
- Infections

Complications With The Baby

The most common forms of injury to the newborn baby include:

- Cerebral Palsy Claims
- Umbilical cord complications
- Brachial Plexus Nerve Damage
- Infant death

It is never an exciting moment when you find out that a mother or child have suffered from the above complications.
