Birth Injury Post Traumatic Disorders
Having a child should be an exciting and important time in your family’s life. When traumatic birth incidents occur, they endanger the safety and health of the mother and baby, and that impacts the entire family.
A traumatic birth incident can affect the mother, the baby or both mother and baby. A birth becomes traumatic when:
- Something occurs that endangers the physical health of the mother or baby
- The mother or a witness has reason to believe that the life of the mother or baby is endangered
- A serious threat is posed against the emotional or physical health of the mother or baby
As hard as it is to deal with a traumatic birth experience as it happens, these traumatic birth experiences can also have a long-term adverse impact on the. Many mothers experience mental and physical health issues following a traumatic birth, including Post-Traumatic Stress Symptoms, Post-Traumatic Stress Effects, or Partial Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Partners or other family members who witnessed the traumatic birth may suffer traumatic disorders as well.
Some traumatic births may be the result of other medical conditions of the mother or child; and some are the result of poor medical care. The actions (or inaction) of doctors, nurses, or surgeons during a birth can cause harm to the mother or child. If your doctor ignored a previous diagnosis or existing health condition, or failed to respond to reports of pain or physical harm occurring to the mother, you may have experienced medical malpractice.
