Seeking Support after Wrongful Death of an Infant
Every year in the United States infants are born with birth injuries. Over 50% of these injuries can be avoided if the proper planning and appropriate actions are taken by medical professionals. It is a gut-wrenching story to hear about any mother who suffers a failed child birth but it is something that happens often. Unfortunately, not every pregnancy goes as planned and is a mother’s worst nightmare to ever lose her child. For every 1000 births there are 8 infants that die after and during delivery. Not every but few of those deaths could have been prevented.
When you or someone has been a victim of a wrongful death of an infant it is important to seek support whether it be from a friend, family, or even a support group. Most of the time the hospital itself will put you in contact with multiple groups of mothers who experienced the same situation. Although sometimes it is very difficult to seek support right away after losing a loved one it is encouraged. Not everyone copes the same way so it is understandable for people to take their own route of healing.
Seeking support from a group is helpful in a sense of healing. Hearing another mothers story might give inspiration and motivation to know that you are not alone and there are other mothers out there that know what it’s like to lose a child. This may give you a feeling of sympathy and a safe place for you to be heard if you feel needed. In a support group no one is judged because everyone has gone or going through similar things. They are not forcing anyone to share their story or every detail of your life, it’s just there if you want it and gives you the opportunity to bring peace. There are many support groups out there so if you do not like one there are plenty of others to choose from.
Another benefit of a support group is helping you through your lawsuit. Lawsuits for a wrongful death of an infant can be very overwhelming, and the people that are a part of the group have been through it already, and can assist you, and help ease, or answer any questions you may have. Think of the people in the support group as new friends, and who knows maybe you’ll make a lifelong friend out of it when you least expected.
You or your child should not have to suffer due to a medical mistake that could have been prevented. Don’t wait until its too late.
