Standard Care Includes Knowing The Risk Factors For Shoulder Dystocia
An oversize baby, an obese mother, or complications related to the position of the fetus and the mother during labor and delivery may cause a baby’s shoulder to get stuck behind the mother’s pubic bone which may result in shoulder dystocia. Shoulder dystocia may mean that a child will never have normal use of his or her arm because of the nerve damage caused by this type of birth trauma.
To schedule a consultation with an experienced Ohio birth injury attorney regarding shoulder dystocia, nerve damage, brachial plexus injuries, and Erb’s palsy after a traumatic birth, contact The Lancione Law Firm at 440-331-6100.
Looking back at the mother’s prenatal care records, the lawyers of The Lancione Law Firm may discover that risk factors such as excessive weight gain of the mother or excessive fetal size were not considered and planned for.
A C-section may well be the best option when a baby weighs ten pounds or more. If he or she is stuck in the birth canal during birth, an emergency C-section is still possible, even without advanced planning. The obstetrician can push the head back into the uterus and perform a quick cesarean section which avoids injury to both the mother and the child.
Other remedies include special maneuvers such as pushing the mother’s legs back to her shoulders to straighten out her spine and pelvis. With less resistance, the physician can rotate the fetus, thus avoiding the need to pull hard on the fetus’s head, risking injury.
