Pregnancy, Birth & Maternal Injury

Pregnancy and birth should be times of great celebration but where errors are made these can have lifelong effects for a mother and possibly a baby.

The types of injuries which a mother or baby can suffer from during pregnancy or birth include:

– Failure to identify an ectopic pregnancy
– Misdiagnosis of miscarriage
– Failing to recognise a perforation injury following a caesarean section or dilation and curettage (D & C)
– Failure to identify and/or adequately repair a third or fourth degree tear
– Excessive traction during delivery which causes the baby to suffer from a plexus
– (Erbs Palsy) Injury
