How to defend your baby from fetal distress

Pregnancy comes with a tangled web of information that can easily overload you. If you are expecting, or just hoping to be expecting, you know there are mountains of books to read. In an attempt to make the information a little easier to tackle, this short discussion will tell you the basics you need to know about fetal distress. It is a condition that still does not have well defined regulation, so you want to help your caregivers keep an eye out for it. While your doctor's and nurse's have a duty to do everything they can for you and your baby, mistakes and oversights do happen, so it is important to arm yourself with knowledge about the symptoms and warning signs of fetal distress.

Negligent medical practices can cause birth injuries

Every parent wants the experience of a new baby to be as exciting and enjoyable as possible. While uncomfortable moments come with the territory, when all is said and done most expect to go home with a healthy baby. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Even when it appears that the pregnancy was normal, there are things that can go wrong during labor and delivery, and it is the job of doctors, nurses and other hospital staff to stay alert and respond appropriately to prevent injuries and limit any harmful effects if possible. When they are unable to do this, it is important that parents look closely at the situation to determine whether negligent medical practices may have played a role in their child's injury.

If your newborn was injured in the NICU, you have rights

The birth of a child can be an exciting, anxious and exhilarating time for parents. The anticipation can be both stressful and joyous. However, sometimes the joy felt over a newborn baby is dampened when something goes wrong. There are many reasons why a newborn may need extra care in a neonatal unit and parents naturally trust that all the medical professionals involved in caring for their child are doing the very best that they can. Sadly, this is not always what occurs. If your newborn suffered negligent treatment at the hands of medical personnel while in the neonatal intensive care center (NICU), the results can be devastating.
