Having multiples (twins) raises mothers' and babies' risk of sustaining an injury during birth. Even more, a lot of physicians consider and perform C-Sections solely because the mother is carrying multiples - sometimes increasing the risk of injury.
Unfortunately, for pregnant women who undergo C-Sections, the risk of birth injury increases.
Here are some common reasons for C-Sections:
1) Placental problems
2) Mother with multiples
4) Infant already diagnosed with birth defect
No matter the reason for undergoing a C-Section, the risk of new medical errors is high because having to do another surgery always comes with risks. The consequences can sometimes be no fault of the hospital or doctor.
But, sometimes birth injuries are direct consequences of medical mistakes, systems errors, and procedures not being followed by doctors, nurses, and hospitals. What are some of the more common injuries for mothers who undergo a C-section? What happens when doctors and hospitals don't follow clearly established procedures when they care for you?
1) Fetal Lacerations
2) Infant Breathing Problems
3) Delayed C- Sections
4) Anesthesia Injuries
6) Blod Clots/Hemorrhaging
