C-section births can prevent traumatic deliveries

| Sep 14, 2018 | Helping Parents And Injured Children Move Forward After A Birth Injury |

The beginning of a life is a beautiful moment for a family. People become parents, and life changes forever. Ask an expecting parent what he or she hopes for in a child, and the answer is always “I just want a healthy baby.”

New parents rely on obstetricians, gynecologists and other physicians to make the right calls that result in a healthy birth. Accidents are very rare in Illinois, but errors can be heartbreaking when they occur. Sometimes, the only recourse is a claim for financial compensation to try and get a life off on the right foot after early trauma.

For example, a Springfield woman found out last year that her baby was in the breech position, with the feet towards the vaginal canal. Her doctor recommended a C-section, in which the baby is removed through the abdomen during a surgical procedure. This is used in a third of all U.S. births. She was happy with the experience, which may have prevented a traumatic birth.

A large fetus, ineffective contractions, a distressed baby and other risk factors for a mother or child can cause doctors to recommend a C-section or other alterations to a planned birth process. The preparations for a C-section can seem daunting to expecting families, so it is vital to discuss the options with doctors.

If a mother or baby is injured during childbirth due to the negligence or error of a physician, she and her family may have a case for personal injury compensation. An attorney may help victims of delivery room problems get a new chance at a fresh start for a young life.
