Stillbirths as a result of medical malpractice

Arizona individuals may be unaware that stillbirths occur in roughly 1 out of 160 births, and about 30 percent of the time, the cause is not known. The other two-thirds of stillbirths happen for a number of different reasons including birth defects, placental problems, infections, trauma and umbilical cord accidents. Individuals who have lost a baby due to stillbirth may wish to have an autopsy performed if they do not know the cause.

The risks that maternal trauma pose to a fetus

Maternal trauma, or pregnancy-related injury, poses several risks to the fetus, especially if surgery is required. Expecting mothers in Arizona might not be surprised to find out that violence and traffic accidents are the most common causes of trauma in pregnant women, and this trauma is more likely to cause maternal death than other pregnancy-related medical complications.

Pregnancy complications lead to more maternal deaths

The maternal mortality rate has increased in the United States during the last 20 years, according to a new report that looked at the maternal complication and death rate around the world. The maternal mortality rate in the U.S. has increased to 18.5 maternal deaths for every 100,000 live births. This is an increase from the 12.4 maternal deaths reported back in 1990.
