A cesarean section, or C-section, can be an effective method of addressing
serious complications during birth. An error in recommending or performing
a C-section can create a situation in which an already difficult delivery
puts both mother and child at unwarranted risk of injury or loss of life
due to medical negligence.

When Delaying A C-Section May Be Considered Negligence

If the fetus is in distress, a timely C-section is usually performed. Obstetrical
nurses, technicians, and obstetricians themselves are expected to monitor
fetal condition, determine the cause of any fetal distress during childbirth
and respond promptly and appropriately to ensure the child’s well-being.
Failure to perform a C-section or unreasonable delay in performing a C-section
can have devastating consequences on both the mother and the child.

When Failing To Perform A C-Section May Be Considered Negligence

If through failure to monitor fetal condition during labor or failure to
perform an emergency C-section in a timely fashion a child suffers serious
injury or dies, this error may form the basis of a medical malpractice claim.

Other serious C-section errors include:

  • Nicked bladder or bowel or other surgical error affecting the mother
  • Physical injury to the fetus during the procedure
  • Recommending vaginal birth after a prior C-section and failing to take
    appropriate action to address complications while giving birth
