READ MORE TO FIND OUT…What can go wrong with the birth process?
Possible risks with the birth process. Pregnancy, labor, and birth of a child can be one of the happiest moments in a mother’s life. Although everything can go along as planned, it can be a scary experience because of feelings, medical terms and indifferent doctors. Generally, most patients are anxious and depend on the doctors and other healthcare providers to help them during this period of time. The majority of doctors assist parents through this difficult period of time in order to deliver healthy babies. Unfortunately, sometimes the birth process doesn’t proceed as planned.
Although doctors do not intend harm, harm can still occur because of lack of experience, inattention, or doctors just make plain mistakes. Sometimes, these mistakes can cause irreversible harm on the babies and their families.
Most pregnancies are properly managed and the babies have an uneventful delivery. Beginning with the first sonograms and until the occurrence of birth, physicians have a legal obligation to adhere to medical standards of care to protect babies and their mothers. Failure to follow the standards of care can cause pregnancy complications and catastrophic birth injuries.
