Fathers’ Birth Trauma

Fathers’ Birth Trauma

Fathers Birth Trauma

The majority of birth injury cases focus on the physical and emotional effects on the baby or the mother (or surrogate). Rarely are the effects on a father fully considered, let alone adequately addressed. Yet men who experience fathers’ birth trauma may need support in a number of ways, including emotionally, physically, financially — and legally. This is especially so in cases in which a spouse, partner, or baby dies in childbirth due to medical malpractice negligence, or in the most devastating scenario of all in which both a mother and baby die due to such negligence.

Rachel Diamond, Ph.D. effectively reflects on the mental health of men who experience fathers’ birth trauma from all angles and the importance of addressing it.1 From birth complications that result in birth injury to maternal or infant deaths, fathers need to have useful guidance and helpful resources at their disposal.

Fathers whose spouses, partners, or infants have been the victims of birth injuries or have died due to provable medical malpractice negligence often seek legal help.
