Preterm Birth Complications Lawyer

A pregnancy typically lasts 40 weeks. Complications such as the premature rupture of membranes (PROM) can cause a preterm birth. In some cases, doctors may perform a C-section to speed up delivery.

Whenever babies are born prematurely, doctors must take additional precautions to protect them from complications. Babies born prematurely are at risk of:

  • Respiratory distress syndrome (RSD)
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Learning disabilities
  • Deafness and blindness
  • Pneumonia
  • Infections
