Negligence during pregnancy can occur before as well as during or after birth. Mothers-to-be are a unique set of patients and require care not only for their unborn child but also for themselves.
Careful monitoring of mother and baby is the norm in the UK. For the vast majority of pregnancies, such monitoring will quickly identify potential dangers such as pre-eclampsia (dangerously raised blood pressure), jaundice, infections, blood or diet deficiencies, and of course physical problems, such as breach presentation.
Not every problem with a pregnancy means the medical staff involved have been negligent. But any concern about pregnancy complications which have led to injury should be discussed with a solicitor who specialises in pregnancy negligence and compensation claims.
