Negligent High Risk Birth Management
Unfortunately, not all pregnancies go smoothly. There are multiple reasons that pregnancies can become high risk and few of these reasons are within a mother’s control. The ability to properly monitor and care for the growing infant is, however, within the doctor’s control and if they fail to do so, they need to be held accountable.
When doctors fail to give proper care and when their actions cause harm to a child, they should be held responsible. At the Rocky River law offices of The Lancione Law Firm, we are dedicated to taking action against negligent health care providers by filing medical malpractice lawsuits in Ohio courts.
Many of the cases we handle involve high-risk pregnancies and related factors:
- Advanced maternal age: Women that over age 35 are more likely to face complications in their pregnancies. Accordingly, their doctors must closely monitor the health of both the mother and the child.
- Mothers with diabetes: Diabetes raises the risk of problems for babies and mothers because it can increase the levels of blood glucose aka sugar in the blood. Too much glucose is not good for growing babies and can cause serious complications.
- A history of premature birth: Premature infants are more susceptible to infections, respiratory and developmental problems than other infants. This is why doctors should do everything possible to provide top quality medical care. Unfortunately, this does not always happen.
- PROM and PPROM (premature rupture of membranes): When pre-term premature rupture of membranes occurs during pregnancy, labor should begin quickly. However, when it does not, it should be induced. Failure to do so may cause significant problems for infants potentially causing birth injuries.
- Suspected large fetus: Women carrying large fetuses also face potential problems, such as cephalopelvic disproportion. This is a condition when the infant is too large to fit through the mother’s pelvis during delivery.
- Twins, triplets and multiples: When mothers carry multiple infants, they also face potential problems. Doctors must take appropriate care to make sure that all babies are healthy as well as the mother.
