The birth of a child is one of the most exciting times in a parent's life. Every parent is concerned that their child will have a safe and healthy birth, but this is not always the outcome. Unfortunately, there are times when doctors are negligent and serious birth injuries occur. In the most extreme cases, the child or the mother may not survive the delivery of the baby. The majority of potential birth injuries are preventable with careful monitoring and treatments for any existing conditions that might be a risk for the mother and child. It is vital that any problems are accurately diagnosed to avoid serious injury or other health risks. Even a baby that is successfully delivered is at risk for birth injuries.
