Obstetrical malpractice cases can encompass many issues.
This is because the OBGYN is not only looking after the care of the mother, but the doctor also has to monitor the condition of the baby.
Because this is the case, many issues can arise.
Some of the main things that the doctor is monitoring with the mother are the mother’s heart rate, blood pressure, diabetes, eating habits, etc…
As for the baby, the doctor is looking at the baby’s development (will there be a possible shoulder dystocia issue during a vaginal delivery), whether the baby is in distress and if an emergency C-section is needed.
A possible uterine rupture or placental abruption are also things that the doctor is paying close attention to.
Obstetrical malpractice can deal with all the things which can happen during the pregnancy process.
This is why it is very important that doctor be sure to pay attention to possible warning signs along the way.
