Birth Injuries

Childbirth is an emotional and physically demanding experience.  Parents put their faith and trust in the doctors, midwife’s and nurses looking after the mother and the unborn child and expect a certain standard of care.  And in the majority of cases this level of care is met, and often exceeded.

However, when that standard of care slips, and the mother and baby are failed by staff entrusted to look after them, the consequences can be devastating for mother and baby.

From undiagnosed conditions in pregnancy such a preeclampsia or maternal or gestational diabetes, to preventable neurological damage occurring in delivery such as cerebral palsy, Butcher & Barlow will fight for the support and rehabilitation required by parent and child.
