Your doctor might be at fault if your baby has brain damage

Expectant parents often relish the various stages of a pregnancy. It is typical to enjoy feeling a developing fetus kick, listening to the heartbeat and deciding on a name. But in some cases, pregnancy quickly shifts from exciting to terrifying when something is wrong with the baby.

Women remain at heightened risk of misdiagnosed heart attack

Over 50 percent of women state that when they sought medical care based on the belief they were experiencing a heart attack, their medical care provider falsely stated their symptoms were not connected to a heart attack or acute myocardial infarction. Instead, the physician was more likely to point to a different concern such as acid reflux.

Early induction of labor and increased risk of birth injury

Early induction of labor is medically necessary in certain situations. Examples can include a pregnancy that is more than two weeks post term, an infection within the uterus or if the mother has a high blood pressure disorder. Without an appropriate justification, early induction is not recommended as the risks can outweigh the benefits. These risks can include a diminished oxygen supply to the infant and serious bleeding problems for the mother.

The correlation between counting kicks & reduced stillbirth rate

Prenatal care providers encourage mothers in their third trimester of pregnancy to monitor fetal movement. This generally involves counting kicks. In many cases, the obstetrician, family practitioner or other prenatal care provider will task the mother with logging kicks over a 10-minute time span. The physician would then encourage the mother to reach out and schedule an appointment in the event the mother notices decreased movement.

Spinal surgeon injures patients, faces prison time

Spinal cord injuries are not uncommon. The medical professionals with Johns Hopkins Medicine report an estimated 12,000 new spinal cord injuries every year, noting this form of injury is the most common cause of permanent disability in children and adults in the United States.
