Birth Hypoxia | Romanucci & Blandin
If your baby does not receive sufficient oxygen during the birthing process, they can develop birth hypoxia, which is a serious birth injury. This can happen as the result of another birth complication, such as shoulder dystocia, breech delivery, umbilical cord prolapse, umbilical cord rupture, umbilical cord compression or improper monitoring of the baby during labor. There needs to be medical staff who are constantly in charge of monitoring to see if the fetus is in distress and then responding immediately to ensure that the baby never experiences oxygen deprivation.
It is essential that all medical professionals are aware of the signs of oxygen deprivation and know what to do if they notice these symptoms in the baby during labor. Immediate action needs to be taken if they notice oxygen deprivation to ensure that no further deprivation occurs. If a doctor or nurse fails to notice or treat oxygen deprivation, they may be held responsible for their medical negligence.
