The Facts The client was a 28 year old woman who was pregnant and attended hospital to give birth when she started to have labour pains. She was monitored during the birth but unfortunately the medical staff did not watch and interpret the information...
The Claimant was born in June 2009, about 10 days after the expected estimated due date. The mother had a normal pregnancy.
When she was admitted to the birthing unit, CTG monitoring was carried out and an artificial rupture of membranes was performed. Shortly afterwards, abnormalities appeared in the CTG trace which continued. These included prolonged episodes of fetal bradycardia, lack of baseline variability in the CTG trace and so on.
The client was born at a London Hospital after his mother was induced. There were persistent decelerations apparent on the CTG monitor during delivery. Unfortunately these were not noted and acted on. As a result the baby suffered hypoxic ischaemic encaphalopathy. He was later diagnosed with cerebral palsy as a result of injury suffered during his birth.
The client was a 34-year-old woman who was just past her due date when she attended hospital to give birth. A CTG during the course of that day showed prolonged deceleration of the foetal heart. In the evening there were further CTG abnormalities.
The Facts - The client was a child born in October 2005. In the course of his birth, delivery was attempted by firstly a ventouse cap and then forceps. He was left with lacerations on his face and head as a result of the forceps delivery. He developed permanent scarring on his temple and scalp and this was obvious at a conversational distance.
The Facts The client was a 24 year old woman who was six months pregnant when she went in to hospital with abdominal pains.
