Improper Prenatal Medical Care Can Harm Both Mother And Child
When medical professionals do not follow the standard of care for health monitoring prior to labor and delivery, the consequences can be severe for both mother and child. Many birth injury cases involve undiagnosed or improperly treated conditions, including:
Delivery Room Procedures And Birth Injuries
Surgical errors, emergency room errors and other preventable mistakes made during the labor and delivery process can result in injuries such as:
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb’s palsy
- Shoulder dystocia

Forceps, vacuums and other instruments that are used during labor and delivery can be harmful if they are not employed correctly.
