Birth Injuries Are Devastating. We Can Help Hold Providers Accountable.
The birth of a child is one of the most exciting and nervous moments in anyone’s life. You stand on the verge of becoming a parent, but the real possibility exists of complications or mistakes threatening the health and life of your child.
It does not matter if you are delivering your child with a midwife in a home birth or you are in a hospital receiving care from an obstetrician and a team of nurses, there may be complications that require a skilled response or there may be simple mistakes that harm your child.
Some of the common mistakes include:
- Failing to monitor the child’s vital statistics
- Using excessive force/traction
- Lack of a good birth plan
Some of the birth injuries that can be caused by these mistakes include:
- Cerebral palsy
- Shoulder dystocia
- Erb’s palsy

Midwives face the same risk of making mistakes or encountering difficulties that they cannot or simply do not respond to appropriately, resulting in injuries to the child. We understand how to build a strong case when midwife malpractice hurts a child.
