C-section deliveries are the most commonly performed procedures in the United States. Although rare, sometimes the surgical procedure can injury newborns during the delivery process. However, a new device, called C SAFE, may reduce injuries during C-sections in Texas and around the country.
During pregnancy and childbirth, doctors and hospitals are expected to provide quality care that is based on the patient's needs and health history. When doctors do not follow care standards for special conditions, birth injury can result. Depending on the severity of the situation, a birth injury can cause permanent disability or even death.
