Nashville Post-natal Infections Lawyers

The birth process should be carefully controlled and monitored by the medical practitioners in the delivery room, as doing so can put a newborn and mother at risk of developing post-natal infections. Sadly, these infections, which occur after birth, can cause a great amount of suffering for both the baby and his or her family.

Unfortunately, post-natal infections are typically the direct result of a medical professional’s negligence. When this is the case, however, a Nashville family who is so victimized can seek the help of the legal team at Pohl & Berk, LLP, in taking action against the medical professional or parties responsible for the infection.

Common Post-natal Infections

If a doctor or other practitioner is negligent or reckless during delivery, post-natal infections can easily occur.  Post-natal infections, which are a form of birth injury, can directly affect both a mother and her child, and may stem from:

  • The use of unsterile equipment
  • Conception products left in the uterus / Endometritis
  • Perineum infection
  • Urinary infection
  • Breast infection / Mastitis

Through these and other manners, a baby or mother, or both, may sustain a post-natal infection that can cause devastating health issues.
