Caring Assistance for Southfield, Michigan Families Affected by Birth Injury
Southfield, Michigan Birth Injury Attorney and Cerebral Palsy Attorney
The story is not a new one but is tragic nonetheless. A young woman living in Southfield, Michigan is pregnant with her first child. She is excited and very cautious. She eats well, gets the right amount of rest, exercises and is diligent about her prenatal visits. Everything she does is for the health and well-being of her unborn child.
When the time comes and labor begins, she reports to the hospital in Southfield as she and her obstetrician discussed. Everything seems to be going well until there are some unusual heart rate readings on the fetal monitor. Her doctor is unavailable so residents step in and manage her labor and delivery. All throughout the day, the residents monitor her but little progress is made toward delivery and the decreased heart rate continues.
Finally, after several hours, the woman’s doctor comes in, reads the fetal monitor strips and immediately calls for an emergency c-section. Although the procedure was done fairly quickly, the damage to the infant was already done. After not receiving an adequate supply of oxygen for an extended period of time, the baby suffered severe brain damage from hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy.
