During pregnancy, it is very important for a woman to take care of herself and maintain her health and strength. And while there can be circumstances in which a woman may need to use prescription medications while pregnant, care must be taken regarding the kinds of drugs that are prescribed. Medicine consumed by a mother could cause birth injuries to the child she is carrying.
Imagine that you are a new mother. You have just delivered your first child without incident. But only days after being released from the hospital you experience dizziness, excessive nausea and vomiting, your reflexes have slowed and you're suffering from more severe headaches than usual. Would you think this was a normal part of giving birth or would you recognize this as the warning signs of postpartum preeclampsia?
After a baby is born, most parents want to know how their child is doing. Are they breathing properly? Were there any complications? And while most parents are relieved to hear that their child was born without incident, for some parents this isn’t the case and a birth injury has occurred.
