Birth Injuries Don’t Just Happen to Babies
Birth injuries don’t only affect new babies. Birth injuries can also happen to mothers. A birth injury is any injury that happens to a mother or the baby during pregnancy or delivery. Sometimes, birth injuries or death occurs to the mother because of medical malpractice.
Minor birth injuries include when a doctor or nurse must perform an episiotomy or stitches to repair a tear in the mother’s vaginal area. However, there are other birth injuries that can cause permanent problems or even death to the mother.

Many Injuries Are Avoidable
Less than 100 years ago, death during childbirth was a common fear. We simply didn’t have the technology that we can now use. Many birth injuries and the death of the mother are avoidable. We simply don’t have as many circumstances that can permanently alter life thanks to medical technology.
Medical technology helps healthcare professionals know when a mother needs an emergency c-section because of a spike or drop in blood pressure or to diagnose group B strep in order to start the mother on antibiotics and help ensure a baby doesn’t develop meningitis.
Yet, when these common standards are not upheld, mistakes happen that permanently change an entire family. In those instances, you need a Philadelphia birth injury lawyer.
