Placenta previa, a condition in which the placenta covers all or part of the opening to the cervix, is usually detected during an ultrasound. Once it is diagnosed, it is important for the mother to be treated to avoid a potentially dangerous complication for herself or her child. If you or your child has been hurt by a placenta previa, it is possible that your injury could have been prevented. A New York birth injury attorney will help you determine whether the injury could've been avoided and help you recover any damages to which you may be entitled.

The exact treatment plan for placenta previa depends on a number of factors. A doctor should consider the amount of vaginal bleeding, how far along the pregnancy is, the exact position of the placenta, and the health of the mother and child. In most cases some form of bed rest is required. Some mothers may be able to be on bed rest at home, while others with steady or significant bleeding may require hospitalization. In cases of extreme bleeding, the baby may need to be delivered via an emergency C-section.

If your doctor failed to explain your placenta previa treatment options and you or your child suffered as a result, it is important to contact a New York birth injury attorney at 1-800-PAGAN-911 for more information about your rights and potential recovery.
