A pregnant woman and her baby rely on competent doctors to carefully care for and monitor them throughout the pregnancy and delivery. If a physician fails to detect signs of complications, there may be tragic consequences that lead to premature delivery, birth injuries, or death to the mom and baby. Doctors who fail to properly monitor their patients that result in birth injuries may be held accountable for malpractice and may have to pay damages as a result of their negligence.

- Bladder or uterine infection
