Thank you for all your hard work, I will recommend you to friends and family if they ever need your services.
Errors can be made by midwives and hospital obstetricians during antenatal care and the birth itself. For the child, this can result in the deprivation of oxygen which can cause serious brain injury, cerebral palsy and brachial palsy. The mother may suffer during the birth as a result of a lack of care. Perineal tears which are incorrectly assessed and repaired and uncontrolled bleeding (haemorrhaging) are just two examples of serious gynaecological injuries suffered by mothers during pregnancy and child birth.
Proving a medical negligence case involving pregnancy and childbirth:
- Breach of duty: Any midwife or obstetrician who treats you during your pregnancy or in labour owes you a duty of care. They are required to deal competently with what can be a rapidly changing situation. We have to demonstrate that the standard of care you received fell below that of a reasonable and competent midwife or obstetrician and was therefore negligent.
- Harm: we need to prove that the negligence caused you harm
