Potential Health Complications with an Unborn Child
As an unborn child develops in the womb, a variety of health complications can arise. Appropriate prenatal care will monitor the baby’s health to check for abnormalities.
Vital signs of an unborn child that need to be monitored include:
- Blood pressure
- Heart rate
- Blood-oxygen levels
- Body-size measurements
An obstetrician may notice a problem with a developing child and decide to take action. However, such actions can be just as problematic as the health complication itself if the wrong action is taken and a prenatal misdiagnosis occurs. Misdiagnosing the unborn child’s health concerns will result in the wrong steps being taken to treat them, such as administering the wrong medication to the mother or performing an unsafe birth.
Standing Up for Justice After Prenatal Misdiagnoses
You and your unborn child, or newly born child, deserve nothing but the best possible medical care. Any medical provider’s failure to diagnose a prenatal issue and call for the correct treatments should be met with legal action to provide you with deserved compensation, and to hopefully deter the same mistake from ever occurring again.
