Our Birth Injury Attorney Will Travel to You if Needed
Postpartum hemorrhage occurs after delivery or c-section. Uncontrolled heavy bleeding can lead to shock, a loss of fertility, brain damage, or even death. Medical providers have a responsibility to monitor new mothers and respond quickly with appropriate treatment to control bleeding. At Angel Law, P.C., our Portland birth injury lawyer represents clients in postpartum hemorrhage cases.
Causes of Postpartum Hemorrhage
There are many causes of excessive bleeding in the mother after birth. Some causes of postpartum hemorrhage include an inability of the uterus to contract after delivery, tears, placental abruption, placenta previa, placental accrete, blood clot disorders, and tissues from the placenta invading or rupturing the uterine wall. In addition, some cases of postpartum hemorrhage arise from steps taken by medical professionals.
Some steps taken by medical professionals that may cause hemorrhaging include:
- Medications used to induce labor
- Medications for stopping contractions
- Use of forceps
- Vacuum assisted delivery
Certain women are at greater risk for postpartum hemorrhage and should be carefully monitored after the delivery, including women with preeclampsia, gestational hypertension, or obesity. If a medical provider’s actions or failure to monitor women results in serious injury or death, the medical provider can be held responsible for the damages.
