Did The C-Section Help Or Hurt You?

Birth is a wonderful moment for families, but it can also be extremely dangerous for mother and child. A doctor may believe a C-section is the most appropriate way to give birth for a host of reasons. However, C-sections are serious operations, and complications are common.

Recovering from a C-section is already difficult, as it is an invasive surgery on top of the marathon that is carrying a child. Your body has a lot of healing to do. A mistake or error during a C-section can create lifelong or life-threatening complications. If you’re in this situation, Cronin, Fried, Sekiya, Kekina & Fairbanks is here to help.

Common C-Section Errors

The medical process for a C-section involves making an incision into a person’s abdomen and uterus to remove a child directly. To do this, the doctor may move organs and cut muscles. It is major surgery, with all the issues that can come along with it, such as:

  • Medication errors
  • Surgical slips
  • Infection
  • Improper aftercare

However, on top of your possible injuries, your baby may also face complications. Unskilled C-sections leave mothers and their babies in a very precarious position when they can least afford it.
