Birth injury damages shouldn't fall on the parents

Birth injuries can come in a variety of forms. Last week, we discussed how some birth injuries can come with a doctor doesn't act quickly if a fetus is in distress. This is only one of the causes, but it is also one that is preventable. We know that all parents who are expecting a baby want the baby to be born healthy and be able to leave with the mother. This isn't always the case. Some babies do suffer harm at the hands of the medical professionals who are supposed to keep them safe.

What is fetal distress during labor and delivery?

When you go into the hospital to have a baby, the medical team is going to monitor your baby. This can be continual or periodic. In either case, this provides an important glimpse into how your baby is tolerating the stress of labor. If there are any issues, the medical team can spring into action to help your baby.
