When a woman is preparing to give birth in New York, it does not matter if it is her first pregnancy or if she has given birth before, each birthing situation can be very different and require both mental and physical preparation. What many women fail to recognize is how imperative it is that they work with their doctor to communicate their desires. Women who tell their doctors their concerns and desires promptly without sacrificing honesty are often much more confident when it comes time to deliver their baby.
If you have recently experienced childbirth, then you know firsthand the toll that it can exact on your body. Typically, you are willing to endure the ordeal due to the outcome it produces. Yet oftentimes, delivery complications can easily lead to injuries to you and/or your baby (regardless of whether you delivered vaginally or via C-section). Many from New York have come to us here at Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld, LLP concerned about the latter, whether due to them questioning if they needed to have a C-section at all or being concerned that their doctor never recommending one.
Pregnancy and childbirth are times of joy for parents in New York. Having a baby puts a lot of strain on your body. You may feel different. You may experience different things after the birth. However, not everything you go through is natural. While a loss of bladder control for a short time is okay, having prolonged issues is not normal. According to the Cleveland Clinic, the bladder and associated muscles and nerves may undergo damage during delivery. This damage may require medical intervention to correct it.
You looked forward with much-awaited anticipation to the arrival of your infant child and were stunned to find out that he or she passed away in utero. Now, you are left reeling with the unexpected stillbirth of your infant and trying to understand how to cope with such a tragic loss.

You are anticipating the birth of your baby and are excited about how your life is about to change. As you prepare to give birth at the New York hospital of your choice, you are feeling some anxiety about what will happen during delivery. At Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld, LLP, we have helped many expectant parents to learn more about birth injuries and what their options are if they are dealing with the consequences of a traumatic birthing experience.
Many women undergo Cesarean deliveries every day in New York hospitals. According to the Mayo Clinic, a C-section is a surgical procedure that comes with risks over a vaginal delivery. However, vaginal deliveries also have risks. Getting a C-section is often the only option to preserve the health and safety of you and your baby. Sometimes a C-section is less risky than trying a vaginal delivery.
Sometimes the actions your doctor takes during delivery to try to help you and your baby can actually do more harm than good. One such situation that may occur in a New York hospital is the use of forceps during delivery. While forceps can and have been used many times to successfully help deliver a baby without having to resort to surgical methods, they have also caused undue harm to newborns when used incorrectly or by a doctor who was not trained properly.
There is a lot of talk these days in New York about home births. While this may seem like an old tradition, it is actually regaining in popularity. Many women like the idea of being in the comfort of their own homes when giving birth. However, there is some concern over whether a home birth is as safe as one in a hospital setting. According to the Midwives Alliance North America, studies have proven that a home birth can be completely safe.
Cerebral palsy is commonly mentioned when people talk about birth injuries. If you are pregnant, you may even worry about your child getting it during the birthing process. However, what you may not understand is that your New York doctor may not be the one to blame if your child is born with CP.
