One of the saddest events of life is the stillbirth of the much anticipated baby. Parents spend months planning and preparing for their baby’s arrival and imagining the future with their child. When their child is stillborn, parents seek answers as to why. Possible causes of stillbirths are many, and they include: infection of the lining of the uterus, prenatal negligence, mismanaged labor, failure to diagnose risk factors such as an overweight mother or fetus, failure to recognize and take action when decreased fetal movement is observed, placental complications, or umbilical cord complications. If the stillbirth of your child was the result of medical negligence, you may benefit by contacting an experienced birth trauma lawyer.
