A C-section can be a crucial part of the birthing process if there are complications that cannot be remedied otherwise. Some women even plan for a C-section if they know that they could have an increased risk of complications through standard delivery. However, C-sections themselves are not free of risks, and, in some cases, a woman and her newborn can be injured due to preventable mistakes that happen during a C-section procedure.

C-Section Injuries to A Mother
Many birth injuries caused by medical malpractice affect only the newborn child. C-section errors are unique in that they can injure both the child and the mother, which can effectively double the number of plaintiffs with a valid case. Although children cannot file a claim, so the mother will retain the right to pursue a claim on behalf of her newborn child.
C-section injuries that mothers may suffer include:
- Internal bleeding
- Post-operation blood clots
- Severe infection around the surgery site
- Injury to the bladder or uterus
- Amniotic fluid embolism or blood contamination
- Increased injury risk during future pregnancies
To treat C-section injuries suffered by the mother, various medical care might be needed. Most dramatically, an injured mother might need further surgeries, with complications and risks.
How Often are Babies Hurt by C-Sections?
C-section injury risks are more significant for the mother than for her baby. The risk of a newborn being injured during a C-section is about 1%. But if an injury does happen to the child, it can be more severe and life-changing than any injury suffered by the mother.
How do C-sections Affect a baby?
- Increased risk of respiratory issues early in life
- Lacerations due to rushed surgeries
- Unsafe reaction to anesthesia during delivery
- Infection from the mother
It is essential to take your child to a pediatrician for regular check-ups weeks and months after they are born. If the C-section has caused an injury or illness and the medical staff has not noticed the injury immediately after the delivery, the pediatrician might be able to diagnose it. A failure to diagnose the C-section injury to your child can make the hospital staff and pediatrician liable through medical malpractice law.
