What Can Happen During Labor And Delivery?

Both mother and baby can be injured during the delivery process. The infant mortality rate in the US is highest amongst developed nations, and in this country, more women are dying from pregnancy-related complications than in any other developed country.

Healthcare staff, including doctors, nurses, and more, should all be vigilant when a mother is in labor. Doctors and nurses should always be aware of the signs of pre-eclampsia and eclampsia. They should watch for signs of distress and recognize the best steps forward for delivery. This includes making a decision of whether or not to perform a C-section.

Some of the most common injuries that occur to a child during the labor and delivery process are:

  • Bone fractures
  • Meconium aspiration
  • Fetal oxygen deprivation
  • Brain bleeds
  • Nerve damage
  • Cerebral palsy
