Maternal Obstetrics / Birth Complications
Maternal obstetrical or birth room complications can take many forms and they can affect the course of birth options and post-natal outcome for both mother and baby. During the prenatal period, maternal conditions such as gestational diabetes, hypertension, cardiac disease, renal disease, or blood clotting abnormalities may require intensive and ongoing management. Any of these can complicate the course of a pregnancy and may affect the outcome and must be properly diagnosed and managed.
Medical Complications such as uterine rupture, cervical laceration, liver injury, and clotting abnormalities require timely recognition and management to prevent permanent injury or death. If there has been an obstetrical complication that has resulted in maternal disability or death, further evaluation of the medical records is recommended. The following complications can lead to an obstetric malpractice claim include:
- Vaginal breach delivery
- Instrumental delivery
- Caesarian (“C-section”) complications
- Uterine rupture
- Postpartum hemorrhage
- Pregnancy-induced hypertension (PIH)
- Preeclampsia and eclampsia
- Hellp syndrome
