C-Sections: Life-Saving Or Life-Threatening Depends On Timing

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
