As an expectant mother, or the partner of an expectant mother, you are doing everything you can to bring your child safely into the world. You are keeping up to date on the often changing, and sometimes confusing, lists of what a mother-to-be can and cannot eat, you are faithfully attending doctor's appointments, and you are preparing your ideal birth plan.

Then, in an instant, everything changes.

You begin experiencing symptoms that you may first dismiss, then chalk up to the flu or a virus, and finally become concerned about. Your doctor, however, may not have shared your concern. Instead, your doctor may have misdiagnosed a condition such as HELLP - a syndrome involving the breakdown of red blood cells, elevated liver enzymes, and a low platelet count - without conducting the necessary tests. In so doing, your doctor may have put you and your child at serious risk of injury or death.

You, or your partner or loved one, may have had a serious pregnancy condition such as HELLP if you experienced any of the following symptoms:
  • Headaches
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Pain or tenderness in the upper right abdomen
  • Fatigue
  • High blood pressure
  • Vision problems
  • Edema
  • Bleeding

While HELLP is not as common as the flu or a virus, it is relatively easy to test for, and knowledge of the condition can be critically important to the outcome for the mother and child.

If you have been injured, or if you have lost a loved one, because of misdiagnosed or undiagnosed HELLP, please contact a New York birth injury lawyer for a free consultation about your rights and potential recovery. You can reach a compassionate and experienced New York birth injury attorney today at 1-800-PAGAN-911.
