How Medical Negligence Leads to Stillbirths

Medical malpractice claims for stillbirth frequently arise when the doctor fails to heed warning signs before delivery that the baby may be in danger. An ultrasound may show a loss of amniotic fluid. The mother may develop pregnancy related form of high blood pressure (a condition known as preeclampsia), which places the baby under great stress. The baby's fetal movements may decrease markedly. These and other signs may require a doctor to take interventions for the safety of the baby. When a doctor fails to appropriately respond to these signs and a baby is stillborn as a result, the doctor may be held accountable in a medical malpractice claim.

Stillbirths may also result from a doctor's failure to appropriately respond to warning signs at delivery. Fetal monitoring strips provide a constant source of information to a physician throughout the course of a mother's labor. The fetal monitoring strips may show patterns that are recognized as consistent with fetal distress. A medical malpractice claim may arise if a physician fails to recognize these patterns or fails to adequately respond to these patterns and the baby is stillborn as a result.
