Death During Childbirth | Talk to a St. Louis Maternal Death Lawyer Today

There is nothing more devastating than losing someone during childbirth. Approximately 700 women die every year in the U.S. due to pregnancy or childbirth complications. The most common causes of
>death in childbirth include infection, bleeding, and preeclampsia (in roughly 2% to 8% of pregnancies). According to the World Health Organization, “in 2015, roughly 303,000 women died during and following pregnancy and childbirth. Almost all of these deaths occurred in low-resource settings, and most could have been prevented.”

While some deaths during childbirth aren’t preventable, most are entirely avoidable. It’s the responsibility of the medical personnel assigned to the patient to monitor any underlying conditions that might pose a problem during labor, closely observe the patient during their pregnancy and labor, and have precautions and other actions in place to keep the patient and their unborn child safe during childbirth. Medical personnel are required to provide a certain medical standard of care to patients. If a patient’s death in childbirth is caused by a medical personnel’s failure to:

  • Become familiar with the patients’ existing health conditions before labor
  • Monitor the patient for potential issues in the early stages of labor
  • Act quickly during labor if complications arise
  • Sterilize equipment and the room prior to and throughout the patient’s labor
  • Take precautions and avoid handling the patient or their unborn child without the utmost level of care

If your immediate family member has been the victim of medical malpractice during childbirth, you could be eligible to file a wrongful death claim to recover compensation for your family’s harm and losses caused by negligent medical personnel. Generally, maternal death claims in St. Louis can be proved by providing evidence of a doctor-patient relationship, proof of the victim’s death, and evidence that the medical personnel acted in a way that deviates from the way that a relatively prudent and competent medical professional would act when treating a patient during labor.
