The care given to mother and child after birth can be just as critical as the care given during labor. This is especially true when medical complications are identified by doctors during birth.
Newborn babies can suffer serious and life threatening injuries when the medical staff fails to:
- Identify at treat respiratory stress disorder (RSD)
- Identify and treat jaundice
- Transfer an infant to intensive care
- Consult specialists in neonatal care and other relevant fields when necessary
Doctors must also monitor mothers for signs of postpartum complications. Common injuries suffered by mothers after the birth of a child include:
- Sphincter injuries
- Reactions to anesthesia
- Excessive bleeding
