April is Cesarean Awareness Month 

A New Born Baby

Cesarean Awareness Month is global public awareness campaign to encourage families to be educated advocates for themselves and their babies. Two common forms of medical negligence include waiting too long to perform a C-section, or making avoidable mistakes during the procedure. See our blog. In some instances, healthcare providers are found negligent for failing to perform a Cesarean Section despite clear indicators of fetal distress. Mothers are rarely, if ever, told these avoidable errors are the reason for their child's serious health issues. While our law firm wishes this would never happen again, it is unfortunately occurring every week.
