Abnormal Fetal Presentation

Consult with a Baltimore Birth Injury Lawyer

Prior to delivery, it is essential that the fetus be in the standard vertex presentation (head-first) in order to ensure a safe delivery. This helps protect both the mother and the infant during the labor process. If the baby’s position or size is abnormal, doctor intervention is usually required. This might, in some situations, refer to more simple manual procedures to move the baby, but it may also lead to a planned C-section delivery.

If healthcare professionals do not quickly resolve or identify issues associated with the fetal weight presentation and size, ultimately leading to birth injuries, this can be the basis of a medical malpractice claim. The complications associated with abnormal position, weight, size, and presentation include breech birth, face presentation, or C-section for babies in the breech position.

If you believe you have grounds for a medical malpractice claim, contact a Baltimore birth injury attorney for a free consultation. Call (888) 695-2963 today.

When Are Doctors Responsible for Birth Injuries Associated with Abnormal Presentation?

All doctors and medical professionals in the room during labor and delivery should be monitoring the mother and the baby at all times. This is the only way to catch problems early on and try to address issues associated with abnormal fetal presentation. Given that failure to act quickly or effectively enough can lead to severe birth injuries and lifelong disabilities, parents of a child with injuries may be entitled to fight for compensation in a personal injury claim.

Obtaining help from an experienced medical malpractice attorney in dealing with a case involving abnormal fetal presentation is essential. If doctors should have identified problems and risk factors that contributed to your child’s birth injuries, you need to consult with a lawyer immediately.
