Delivery Complications Archives

New Research Shows Difficulty Of Spotting Birth Infections

Researchers are recommending that doctors use multiple tests to determine whether newborns are affected by birth infections. The study looked at 44 premature infants with low birth weights. Most of these infants received diagnoses of early onset sepsis - life-threatening bacterial blood infections.

Study: Severe Morning Sickness May Mean More Complications

According to a study of more than 1 million pregnant women, expecting mothers who experience severe morning sickness are statistically more likely to develop other serious complications over the course of the pregnancy. This research has big implications for expecting mothers in Columbus and around the nation.

What Is Shoulder Dystocia And How Can It Affect A Birth

One of the most serious delivery complications is known as shoulder dystocia. While shoulder dystocia should not lead to permanent consequences - but if a doctor, nurse or midwife makes any mistakes, any kind of dystocia can lead to serious problems for the mother and baby.

Parents Win Case Against Inexperienced Midwives

The parents of a Midwestern woman recently received a $100 million verdict in their wrongful death case against one midwife, the woman's husband, and others involved in her botched home birth. This case is a sad example of how important it is to choose a careful and experienced midwife to assist with home births.

Dramatic Increase in Post-Delivery Complications, Part 2

Our last post introduced alarming new research from the Centers for Disease Control. This data showed sharp increases in the rates of life-threatening maternal complications, both during and after delivery. With this data in hand, hospitals and health experts are taking a new look at ways to prevent complications from harming Ohio mothers.

Dramatic Increase in Post-Delivery Complications, Part 1

Ohio mothers may enjoy relatively good healthcare compared to many parts of the world. A new study from the federal Centers for Disease Control, however, concluded that the rate of severe post-delivery complications has increased dramatically in Ohio and the rest of the United States in the past decade.

Severe Birth Complications Becoming More Common In The U.S.

Although serious childbirth complications are relatively uncommon in the United States, new research says that they increased by 75 percent between 1998 and 2009. This might reflect changing childbirth trends - doctors and medical staff may need to respond appropriately to provide safe care to all mothers.

Doctor Warns That Common Preterm Delivery Drug Might Not Help

New research suggests that a common drug used to delay preterm births might not offer any real benefits for newborns. Because the doctor does not think that these drugs help prevent problems, he also mentioned the risk of causing worse harms by trying to delay deliveries.

Study: Mothers Who Start Snoring While Pregnant May Be At Risk

A study from the University of Michigan concluded that women who begin snoring during a pregnancy may be at higher risk of conditions like hypertension and preeclampsia. If medical professionals do not properly respond to these pregnancy complications, mothers and newborns can suffer serious injuries.

Study Links Premature Birth To Pregnancy Complications Later

Potential complications are a big source of worry for expectant mothers. A new study concludes that some mothers are born at significantly higher risk than others. Women who were born premature face a much higher rate of pregnancy complications than mothers who were themselves carried to full term. Ohio birth injury lawyers often see serious harms result from complications when doctors fail to respond appropriately.
