Labor Complications Can Result in Kentucky Birth Injury

Comments (0)
There are many factors involved in the delivery of a baby. Consequently, there are several types of labor complications that can ultimately result in a Kentucky birth injury, leaving your baby with a serious injury.

Issues concerning pre-term labor
Pre-term labor occurs when the mother goes into labor prior to the 37th week of pregnancy. Nearly 10 percent of women will experience preterm labor. The earlier the labor begins, the more at risk your baby becomes of facing a serious health risk.

Placenta issues or placenta previa
Placental issues during labor can result in maternal or fetal hemorrhaging. The result can be fatal for both the mother and the baby. Placenta previa can occur when the placenta covers all or part of the cervix. It can also occur when the placenta tears away from the uterine wall too early.

Complications resulting in fetal distress
There are many factors that can lead to fetal distress such as:

  • Umbilical cord issues
    Complications from medicines used in labor
    Infections
    Complications with the baby's heart rate during delivery
    Complications with the baby's first bowel movement

If your baby has suffered a birth injury at the hands of the delivering doctor and/or hospital staff, you might be able to hold them responsible.
