Birthing simulators provide medical staff valuable experience

Fortunately, most births proceed without serious complications. But because of the wide variety of potential birthing complications and medical circumstances that may be involved, when an unusual situation occurs it may the one of the first times that the medical staff has ever encountered that specific scenario. Without having had hands on experience with a particular birthing complication the risk of an avoidable birth injury is increased.

Rate of c-sections at all time high

Earlier this week in this space we shared a story of a mother who died as a result of an error during a c-section operation and the apparent failure of the hospital and medical staff to properly diagnose the symptoms of the injury in her follow up care. This is a tragic illustration of some of the risks of c-section delivery. While it can be a necessary and even life saving procedure in some case it always carries with it a certain amount of risk.

Family says c-section error led to mother's death

The family of a 31-year-old woman who died shortly after giving birth asserts that a negligent doctor caused the injuries which caused the death of the mother. According to the family the doctor severed her bowel while performing a c-section and then the doctor and the rest of the medical staff ignored her symptoms and complaints.

Study suggests link between birth injury and autism

Medical research continues to search for the underlying cause or causes of autism. While prior examination had focused largely on potential genetic factor, a new study points to correlations between autism and various birth injuries and other types of perinatal and fetal distress.

Court allows wrongful birth case to proceed

Many potential birth defects and serious genetic disorders can now be diagnosed relatively soon after conception. In the case of some genetic problems tests may even reveal a serious potential risk simply by testing the potential parents before a pregnancy has even begun.

Family says vacuum procedure caused birth injury

The family of an eleven-year-old boy has filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against the hospital and doctors involved in his birth. The boy continues to suffer from seizures, developmental delays and chronic headaches.

Technology making strides in Cerebral Palsy treatment

As you may know the title cerebral palsy is used to describe a variety of conditions that create physical disabilities generally caused by damage to the motor control centers of the brain during childbirth or pregnancy. Causes of cerebral palsy can include a lack of oxygen to the unborn baby, premature birth, or infection.
