Maternal Medical and Pregnancy Conditions
When medical professionals fail to diagnose, manage, prevent, or treat maternal health complications or obstetrical conditions, a fetus or newborn is at risk for developing dangerous and permanent birth injuries. If a medical professional fails to properly address and treat an obstetrical complication or maternal medical conditions and the baby is harmed or injured in any way, it is medical malpractice.
Throughout this section, the award-winning Michigan birth injury attorneys at Reiter & Walsh ABC Law Centers will discuss the most common maternal health problems that, without the proper care, can result in cerebral palsy (CP), hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE), infant brain damage, and other dangerous birth injuries. These complications and health conditions include the following:
- Gestational Diabetes
- High-Risk Pregnancy
- Oligohydramnios (Low Fluid in the Womb)
- Post-Term Pregnancy
- Premature Rupture of Membranes (PROM)
- Transvaginal Mesh
- VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Cesarean)
- Maternal Infections (including Chorioamnionitis, Villitis, Group B Strep, Urinary Tract Infections and Bacterial Vaginosis)
