Can Improper Prenatal Monitoring Lead to a Birth Injury in Kentucky?

There are many factors that can cause women to have complications during pregnancy or during childbirth. Some women are more prone to high-risk pregnancies than other, as there may be health situations or other factors that could cause a pregnant woman's unborn child to be at risk of developing birth injuries in Northern Kentucky.

Some factors that play a role include:

  • Women over age 35
  • Teenage pregnancies
  • Prior pregnancies with baby irregularities 
  • Women who have had more than five children
  • Family history of birth defects
  • Bleeding during the last three months of the pregnancy
  • Women weighing less than 100 pounds prior to pregnancy 
  • Women who are under five feet tall
  • Women gaining too much weight during pregnancy
  • Women who have heart conditions or other serious diseases in vital organs
  • Women who have a serious respiratory or autoimmune illness
  • Women who are anemic
  • Women with regular or gestational diabetes


Even women who have had previous kidney infections, vaginal or cervical infections, herpes, tuberculosis, cancer, irregularities with their uterus or reproductive tract, high blood pressure in past pregnancies, and women who have Rh-negative blood and an unborn baby with Rh-positive blood are at high risk.

When expectant mothers and unborn babies are not monitored closely or tested during the pregnancy by their doctors, pregnant women can become at higher risk for complications and birth injuries in Kentucky and throughout this nation. When this occurs, women have a legal claim for financial compensation for such injuries due to improper prenatal monitoring.

If a doctor failed to notice that a pregnant woman was at a higher risk for complications to herself and her unborn infant, he should be held liable for his negligent actions. Please call a knowledgeable Northern Kentucky birth injury attorney at the law office of Schachter, Hendy & Johnson at (859) 578-4444 or (888) 606-5297 to find out if you have a case and receive a free consultation today.
