Prenatal Care Errors

by | Oct 23, 2014 | Birth Injury, Firm News, Medical Malpractice |


During your pregnancy and labor, it is the responsibility of primary care
physicians and OB/GYN professionals to monitor and evaluate the well-being
of both mother and fetus. When serious errors or negligence occurs in
prenatal care, the consequences can be devastating to both parties.

Common prenatal care errors include:

  • Failure to diagnose and/or treat gestational diabetes
  • Failure to diagnose and/or treat maternal hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Failure to conduct regular fetal ultrasounds to keep track of fetal size
    and weight
  • Failure to recognize the symptoms of a serious condition such as placental
    abruption, preeclampsia, premature rupture of membranes or any other conditions

While not all prenatal care errors constitute as medical malpractice, you
may benefit by discussing your situation with an experienced lawyer who
can help answer your questions and help you understand your rights and
options. The Lancione Law Firm has over three generations worth of legal
