Untimely C-Section & Baby's Developmental Delays

http://www.oginski-law.com You're in labor. You're attached to a fetal monitor so the nurses and doctors can see how your baby is doing during your labor. Your spouse is watching two wave patterns on the monitor; one is the baby's heart-rate, the other is the contraction pattern from the outside of your uterus. Do you know what the tracings mean? Most likely, you don't. The obstetrician and the obstetrical nurses are supposed to be watching those fetal tracings to make sure the baby is reacting properly every time you have a contraction. The external and internal fetal monitor are designed to detect whether the baby is in distress every time there is contraction. Problems can arise when there is a failure to timely recognize a baby who is in distress for an extended period of time. Lack of oxygen to the baby, also known as hypoxia, can occur with fetal distress, which can, in some cases, cause brain injury to the baby. Watch the video to learn more.
