Injuries that Mothers Experience During Birth
Mothers are most at risk for injury during labor. However, neglect may cause injuries before or after birth as well.
Preeclampsia occurs only during pregnancy. The issues is characterized by high blood pressure and elevated protein in urine samples. If left untreated, a mother may experience complications with their liver, kidneys, or heart.
This condition occurs when the placenta separates from the vaginal wall. Placental abruption causes serious bleeding and must be treated immediately to protect the health of the mother and baby.
Cesarean Section Complications
C-sections are a surgical procedure. Just as with other types of surgeries, C-sections are accompanied by complications that medical teams must monitor for. Blood clots, scarring, anesthesia complications, and uterine ruptures are risks associated with C-sections.
The process of labor always causes bleeding. However, if extensive bleeding occurs, the mother and child are put at risk for health complications. Postpartum hemorrhaging is the leading cause of death for mothers during delivery and must be actively monitored.
When using an epidural during a delivery, medical workers must monitor the mother’s heart rate, oxygen levels, and blood pressure. Inattention to these stats can put a mother’s life and health at serious risk.
Anal fissures, vaginal tears, and uterine ruptures are known complications of birth. If a mother experiences any of these injuries, medical teams must act quickly to mitigate complications. Sometimes, improper use of tools on the part of a medical team can cause these injuries.
