Most expectant mothers anticipate comprehensive maternity support for their childbirth experience from the obstetricians and hospitals. This may include medical consultations, lab testing, ultrasounds, x-rays and inpatient and outpatient services before during and after birth.
Although most births proceed without complications, when problems arise families may have recourse through our civil justices system.
Although monitoring and medical profiling showed that an expectant mother’s twin fetuses required immediate C-section childbirth surgery, physicians waited several hours before an operating room became available. One infant died in utero. The other lived but was diagnosed with cerebral palsy. When the family sued the hospital, a jury awarded a significant award for future care.
