Birth Injury Complications of a C-Section

Michael Becker

Talk with birth injury attorney if you believe that medical negligence led to your child’s injuries. You can find out if you have a valid claim and who may be held liable.

C-sections are sometimes planned; however, they also can be the result of an emergency during a vaginal delivery. In either instance, there are potential risks for having a C-section.

The following are some of the complications that can happen with a C-section:

  • surgical risks (cutting the bladder or bowels);
  • hemorrhaging;
  • decreased bowel function;
  • respiratory problems in newborn;
  • anesthesia complications;
  • maternal health complications (heart attack, blood clots, etc.);
  • nicking or cutting the baby; and
  • lower Apgar scores.

Any number of things could go wrong that cause injury to a baby. When it was the result of careless or reckless actions on behalf of a medical provider, he or she may be held liable for those injuries.

It is hard to say which is right when it comes to choosing a vaginal delivery or c-section. Each situation is unique and should be thoroughly discussed with your doctor.
