What Is Improper Delivery Technique?

Improper delivery technique can mean many things, including:

  • Improper use of a vacuum extractor
  • Improper forceps delivery
  • Failure to schedule cesarean section to avoid shoulder dystocia
  • Failure to correctly perform maneuvers to relieve shoulder dystocia
  • Applying too much force to the baby’s head, neck or shoulders

Cases of improper delivery technique often involve inexperienced midwives or family doctors who are in over their heads and do not seek the assistance of an experienced obstetrician in a difficult birth situation.

Although obstetricians have more experience and training incorrectly handling high-risk deliveries and responding to emergency situations, they make mistakes, too. Only a careful review of the circumstances can determine if negligence was responsible for a child’s birth injuries.

Common Birth Injury Mistakes

Doctors and other healthcare providers are entrusted with the safety of their patients, and there is no time that this is truer than during labor and delivery of a child. Expectant parents must rely on the education and experience of their medical team, whether it is a garden variety delivery or one besieged by complications. The family has a right to expect that their medical team will follow the best guidelines of medical care. The last few moments in a delivery can be especially hazardous.

There are several types of medical malpractice mistakes that we see over and over again, including:

  • Failure to manage shoulder dystocia
  • Failure to properly use forceps
  • Failure to properly use a vacuum extractor

Injuries Caused By Improper Delivery Techniques
