Oxygen deprivation during childbirth

+ Medical Negligence
+ Sara Westwood
Sara Westwood

Mrs X was around 29 weeks pregnant with her first child when she was admitted to hospital suffering pre-eclampsia (a condition where blood pressure is raised, protein can be found in mothers urine, and headaches, blurred vision and lower leg swelling can occur). The mother was given medication which failed to control the pre-eclampsia. Three days following admission the monitoring of the baby’s heart should have given cause for concern, a scan had showed an issue with the blood vessels to/from the baby, and mother complained of the baby moving less. These factors should have prompted an urgent caesarean section but this didn’t in fact occur until day 4 following admission by which time the baby had suffered oxygen deprivation causing brain damage resulting in physical and cognitive disabilities. This claim was also settled for a seven figure sum with annual payments for life.

Let us take it from here.
