How does multiple gestation affect prenatal care in Kentucky?

A woman who finds out she is expecting more than one baby might have a lot of questions. One of those questions is likely going to be how the multiple gestation will affect her prenatal care. The answer actually depends on the gestational order of the pregnancy, as well as a host of other factors. There are some basic guidelines that our Kentucky readers should be aware of when it comes to twins, triplets or higher order multiples.

Birth injuries caused by Kentucky midwives can be serious

If you recall, last week's blog post was about the mother who won a settlement in a birth injury lawsuit. That post might have some of our Kentucky readers wondering if the injuries their baby suffered during birth would qualify for a settlement. The quick answer to that is that there is no way of knowing unless you have your case evaluated.

$17.5 million settlement reached in birth injury case

We have often discussed birth injuries and how they can have a devastating effect on the baby and the family members.

One mother who has been fighting for compensation for her son has reached a settlement with the hospital who is liable for the boy's injuries.

Hypoxic and ischemic brain injuries might deserve compensation

On this blog last week, we covered hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy. Learning that your baby is suffering from this condition can evoke a wide range of feelings in parents. Anger, hurt and denial are some of the common feelings. You might start to wonder why your child has to suffer. You might wonder how you are going to give your child the best life possible despite the diagnosis. We understand how you feel. We want to work with you to hold the person responsible for your child's condition accountable for his or her errors or negligence.

Birth injury profile: Hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy

Many childbirths happen without any complications; however, it is always possible that something will happen that puts the mother or baby at risk. One complication that can occur is hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy. This occurs when the baby's brain doesn't get enough oxygen. Our Kentucky readers might be interested in learning a little about this condition.

Uterine rupture: A potentially fatal injury during childbirth

Women who are pregnant have likely heard that there are risks associated with going into labor. Some of those women might be at a greater risk than others when it comes to labor and delivery. One risk that some women face is that of a uterine rupture. Any woman who has had a C-section, fibroid removal, or any other surgery that cut into the uterine wall is at a greater risk of uterine rupture than other women. Any pregnant Kentucky resident might like to know more about uterine ruptures.
