Midwife NegligenceFree advice for victims of medical negligence
Birth Injury Claims
Becoming a mother or a father for the first time is an especially emotional time. Expectant mothers would have prepared for months for the arrival of their first child as well as for the trauma of childbirth. Therefore expectant mothers will put a lot of faith in their midwife to help them through childbirth and to provide them and their baby with the highest level of care.
However, there are times when mothers and fathers are let down by the negligent actions of their midwife. These include prolonged labour, serious trauma to the mother and in some serious cases the death or debilitation of the baby.
