When Doctor's Neglect The Well-Being Of The Mother, The Baby Is Also At Risk

One of the rules of obstetrics or maternal fetal medicine requires the doctor to promote maternal and fetal (mom and baby) well being.  One of the ways this is done is by monitoring the mother's blood pressure because high blood pressure can be a warning sign of a serious medical condition for both mother and infant called pre-eclampsia.

A Maryland jury found the doctor did not follow the rules for treating a pregnant woman with high blood pressure, resulting in the death of her child.
