Protecting your baby from traumatic brain injuries at birth

As you are preparing to give birth to your baby in New York, much anticipation and excitement lay ahead as you tend to the last-minute details for planning your birthing experience and getting the nursery ready. At Futterman Sirotkin & Seinfeld, LLP, we have helped many families defend and protect their children who may have received an injury during childbirth. 

While a majority of births may appear to be executed without any noticeable trouble, you should always be aware of the reality that injuries could occur to your baby so you can be prepared to circumvent any hazards that you can control before they become dangerous. For a start, you should take your time to select an OB-GYN and hospital where you are familiar with the people who will be assisting with your birth. You will also benefit from making a detailed birthing plan and discussing it with your health care provider before your due date. Once you arrive at the location where you will be giving birth, it is imperative that you rely on your best judgment and continue to ask any questions that you may have if you are ever doubtful about a doctor's course of action. 

Fox News Network recently shared a story where a young couple chose to file a lawsuit against the hospital where their baby was delivered after he suffered traumatic brain injuries that resulted in epilepsy and cerebral palsy. They claim that the hospital staff failed to communicate effectively and remain vigilant, both things that may have helped them to recognize that their son had an abnormal heartbeat. In situations such as this, while you may not be able to control every aspect and will have to trust and rely on your health care provider, remain as alert as you can and be proactive about expressing your concerns so you can make sure you always know what is happening. 

When you understand the risks of birth injuries, you may be better equipped to protect your baby from suffering an unnecessary injury. For more information about birth injuries, visit our web page.
