A cesarean section, or c-section, is a surgical delivery of a baby that may be planned and scheduled or unplanned due to complications during vaginal delivery. While C-sections are a higher risk than a vaginal delivery, they are considered safe and help at-risk women deliver with fewer complications if emergencies arise. If a necessary C-section is delayed it can leave the baby and mother at risk for serious outcomes, such as cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy, shoulder dystocia, and wrongful death.

Doctoral negligence

Regrettably, there are numerous reasons that a doctor would delay a C-section, leaving the mom and baby susceptible to critical health complications including the following:

  • Missing crucial symptoms of the mother or baby during labor or delivery
  • Failure to properly monitor mother and or baby, overlooking signs of distress
  • Hospital concerns about insurance
  • Understaffed hospital

In addition to negligence of this nature, a C-section is a complex procedure and medical or nursing errors, unfortunately, can occur leaving mother or baby injured.
