Prenatal Care Errors
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
