Pre-eclampsia is a complication during pregnancy that is caused by high blood pressure in the mother which can have consequences for both the mother and the fetus. Complications from pre-eclampsia for the fetus may include intrauterine growth restrictions as well as brain damage due to lack of oxygen in the blood.
What Are The Effects Of Pre-eclampsia Be For The Mother And The Child?
When an expectant mother is suffering from pre-eclampsia, her blood pressure may get so high that the baby can be deprived of adequate oxygen and as a result, can suffer brain damage resulting in cerebral palsy. As far as we know, there is no known cause of pre-eclampsia and little to no effective treatments. Usually, delivery of the baby may be the only answer to save the lives of mother and child, even if it means a premature birth.
Birth Injuries Occur When A C-Section Or Induced Labor Is Not Performed Promptly
When your obstetrician fails to diagnose and treat pre-eclampsia promptly, or fails to induce labor via a natural birth or cesarean section to save the fetus from the effects of pre-eclampsia, birth injury is often the result. When birth injuries happen, parents want and deserve answers — and also deserve compensation when birth defects mean a life filled pain and suffering for the child and excessive medical expenses.
If you think that your baby was born with conditions that may have been caused by unrecognized pre-eclampsia, schedule a free consultation with an experienced birth injury attorney at The Lancione Law Firm, today.
