Family settles birth injury lawsuit after delayed C-section

Four years after the birth of their daughter, a family has settled a lawsuit that claimed a delayed C-section at the hospital resulted in their child suffering a brain injury. Anyone in Rhode Island or elsewhere can really sympathize with this family after reading this story. It begins in January of 2007 when the mother was scheduled to have a C-section, just like she had in her prior births. At 39 weeks into her pregnancy she went to the hospital where she was placed on an external fetal heart monitor by medical staff.

After One C-Section, A Second C-Section Might Be Your Best Option

Many women who are forced to undergo a C-section rather than a vaginal birth due to complications during delivery may hope that the procedure will not affect their ability to have a 'natural' (vaginal) birth for a subsequent child. But, a new study questions whether a VBAC procedure, or Vaginal Birth After Cesarean, may pose a greater risk of birth injuries and even death for newborns and mothers.

C-Section Rates on the Rise Nationwide and Far Exceed Recommended Rates

From 2002-2009, 34 percent of expectant mothers delivered via Caesarean section (C-section), up from approximately 1 in 4 births in prior years to 1 in 3. This is far above the World Health Organization (WHO) recommended target rate for C-sections of 15 percent.
