Doctors, obstetricians, nurses and other medical professionals are held to a high standard. People need to trust their doctors to be competent, to perform the proper research and to manage their patients' matters effectively. Perhaps nowhere is this trust more important than when it comes to prenatal care. In addition to the mother's health, the baby's health is at risk during pregnancy.

But what happens when a medical professional's negligent acts or errors lead to harm or wrongful death to the mother or the baby?

Prenatal Negligence

Medical professionals need to monitor a number of issues during the pregnancy:

  • The mother's health: Physicians and obstetricians need to be on watch for the many maternal health issues that could jeopardize the pregnancy or the mother. For instance, gestational diabetes, preeclampsia, low progesterone levels, obesity and other health concerns need to be considered when providing prenatal care.
  • The baby's health: To provide comprehensive prenatal care, specialists need to monitor the baby as well as the mother.
  • Umbilical cord issues: Even when the mother and the baby are both healthy, other dangers could be present, including the position of the umbilical cord. If the cord is wrapped around the child, it could choke the child. If there is pressure on the cord itself, it could deprive the child of needed nutrients.
  • Position of the child: If the child is turned around (breech) or sideways inside of the uterus, it could cause serious problems during birth.
