There are few occasions as momentous as your child's birth. Many parents understandably want to capture the special moment of birth with pictures or videos that they can appreciate for years to come. However, according to a recent article in the New York Times*, fewer parents may be able to reminisce about their children's births with the aid of pictures and videos in years to come because some hospitals ban the use of cameras, cell phones and video cameras during delivery.

Why Can't You Take Pictures or Video During Delivery?

Many hospitals say that they are protecting the privacy of their staff by forbidding pictures and video in the delivery room. As a New York birth injury lawyer, I acknowledge that privacy may play a part in the hospitals' decisions, but I primarily agree with the critics of these "privacy" policies who allege that hospitals are afraid that a child's birth injury will be caught on camera or video and later used against them.

Contact a New York Birth Injury Lawyer if Your Child Has Been Hurt

What the hospitals are missing is that you do not need a picture or video to prove that your child's birth injury was the result of medical malpractice. If your child has suffered an injury during a New York or New Jersey birth then we encourage you to contact an experienced New York birth injury attorney  at 1-800-PAGAN-911 for more information.
