Birth Injury Glossary of Terms

We want to share vital information with you about birth injuries, and the things that sometimes go wrong during the process of pregnancy and childbirth. Mothers spend time in the care of many doctors and other medical professionals as they prepare for the birth of their children, and when it is time for delivery of the child. When a mother or a baby suffers an injury that was caused by the negligent actions or failure to act on the part of any medical professional, they may be able to take legal action against the individual responsible for their injuries.

This glossary of terms is here to help you get a better understanding of some of the medical terms and expressions used when we talk about birth injury and medical malpractice related to pregnancy and childbirth.
