Childbirth is a natural event, but it can be dangerous for both mother and baby and complications can occur.  One deadly complication is uterine rupture.

During childbirth, a woman’s uterus can experience a strain that can cause it to tear. This can happen despite the best efforts of the doctor or other medical professionals, but a ruptured uterus may be caused by negligence or medical malpractice on the part of obstetricians, surgeons, or other medical professionals.

If a doctor uses the incorrect instruments during labor or delivery, or discounts the warning signs of an impending rupture and one occurs, the physician may be found at fault.

A uterine rupture can be caused by forcing a prolonged period of pushing, pressing down too hard on a mother’s stomach, or making an improper cesarean incision.

Symptoms that may indicate a uterine rupture may occur include:

  • Fetal distress
  • Change in the infant’s heart rate
  • Decrease in uterine baseline pressure
  • Hemorrhaging, or bleeding out
  • Shock
  • Sudden abdominal pain
  • Infant’s presenting head recedes back into the mother’s body
  • Uterus fails to contract

Uterine ruptures are a life threatening emergency.  Potential consequences of uterine rupture include:

  • Lack of oxygen to the baby (hypoxia or anoxia)
  • Hemorrhage and heavy bleeding
  • Postpartum anemia
  • Shock caused by lack of body fluids (hypovolemic shock)
  • Bladder injuries
  • Death
