New Information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Suggest Maternal Mortality Rates on the Rise in the United States
Statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention present a worrisome picture for mothers in New York and throughout the United States. In 1990, 17 out of every 100,000 pregnant women died due to birth injuries and pregnancy-related complications. While many developed countries are seeing a declining rate of maternal mortality, in 2015 twenty-six out of every 100,000 pregnant women in the United States were dying. According to these numbers, this puts the United States’ maternal mortality rate is one of the worst of all developed nations.
There are a myriad of health complications and issues that can arise during a pregnancy, and expecting mothers and their families legitimately expect that medical professionals will exercise the utmost care and caution as they provide preventative and curative treatment to their patients. When they do not, serious injury or even death of the mother and/or the child may be the unfortunate result.
Birth injuries are terrible and traumatic, and can leave a family suffering from the consequences thereof for a lifetime. If your baby was harmed during your pregnancy or subsequent delivery, contact Parker Waichman LLP for your free consultation.
