Pelvic Floor Medical Malpractice Birth Injuries
Among the most serious and problematic birth injuries affecting mothers and surrogates are those involving pelvic floor damage. Such injuries can result in life-altering short- or long-term detrimental effects that reach well beyond constant internal pain. These include sexual dysfunction, bladder incontinence, and bowel issues.1 Pelvic prolapse, which is due to internal organs falling or drooping lower than normal, can also occur, and can cause an unsightly bulge that often results in self-conscious feelings as well as pain.2
In some instances, pelvic floor damage is due to medical malpractice negligence. For example, prolonged second stage labor due to medical errors caused by obstetricians, midwives, nurses, or other medical professionals can result in Pelvic Floor Medical Malpractice Birth Injuries.3 Improper use of forceps may also cause pelvic floor damage and prolapse.4
