When you are pregnant or have a gynaecological condition, you need to be able to count on your doctors to look after your health. However in this very personal area of medicine, when errors are made the consequences can be devastating both physically and psychologically.
If you or your baby has been harmed during pregnancy, or if you have suffered a gynaecological injury from incorrect medical treatment, you might be entitled to bring a medical negligence claim.
Examples of medical negligence in this area include failing to diagnose gestational diabetes, pre eclampsia, placental abruption and other pregnancy related medical conditions in time or at all, failing to correctly screen for birth defects.
Negligence can also occur during various intrusive gynaecological procedures such as pelvic floor repair, fitting medical devices such as vaginal mesh and contraceptives, and terminations.
