Maternal Risk Factors
Our birth injury attorneys fight for families
Doctors need to carefully monitor a woman's health during pregnancy. That's because there are so many medical issues that can arise that can threaten the health and well-being of women when they're pregnant.
Numerous tests exist to diagnose common health problems among pregnant women. Many women also choose to see an obstetrician-gynecologist (OB-GYN) who specializes in women's health during their pregnancy.
But even the most experienced doctors sometimes miss the warning signs that something's wrong with a woman's health. And when they do, the consequences can be catastrophic. Along with birth injuries to the child, the mother herself can develop serious or even life-threatening health problems.
