You can get help if your child is hurt during birth

Birth injuries are horrible to think about because it's the first moments of a child's life when they suffer from them. They don't get the opportunity to live without an injury and see what life is like without a disability, for example. Some birth injuries can lead to death, too, which is another serious concern.

Mothers may be concerned about the risk of birth injuries. As an expectant mother, it is important to pay attention to your care. Errors made by medical providers during your pregnancy, during delivery or just after delivery could put you or your baby's life in danger.

What are some common birth-related medical errors?

Some common medical errors you may see as a pregnant woman or as someone with an infant include:

  • The failure to diagnose pregnancy disorders, such as hypertension or gestational diabetes
  • Poor monitoring and a failure to respond to problems during labor or delivery
  • The improper use of medical equipment or devices like vacuums or forceps
  • The improper assessment of a newborn's overall health

Errors during any part of the process, from the first days of your pregnancy through delivery, could result in serious harm coming to you or your child.

It is important that medical providers who make mistakes while providing care do get held accountable for their actions. It is human to make mistakes, but when other people's lives are on the line, medical providers are expected to deliver a high level of care with the training they've gone through. They should be held accountable if their errors lead to injuries to a child or their mother. Our site has more on what you can do if your child has been hurt during birth or at any time during pregnancy.
