What is obstetrics?
Obstetrics is the area of medical care concerned with pregnant women, the unborn child and the management of diseases exclusive to women.
Pregnancy claims can relate to:
- Cerebral Palsy
- Misinformation on any procedure undergone during or as a result of childbirth
- Complications owing to negligent caesarean procedures
- Failure to recognise haemorrhages
- Mismanagement during pregnancy and labour
- Failing to obtain consent before any procedure before, during or after pregnancy or childbirth
We understand the emotional and distressing time that parents have to endure in the wake of losing a child, and our team of expert solicitors will be with you throughout the process; offering their practical assistance through an incredibly emotional time.
What is a perinatal claim?
Perinatal claims can arise from the negligent care of obstetricians, neonatologists and midwives. We understand that no amount of money or compensation can reverse the loss of a child, however sometimes the results of legal decisions can affect the way that things are done to ensure that the same mistake doesn’t happen again; this can be reassuring for some parents.

Our team at Freeman Harris will work with you to understand what has happened to cause the unexpected death of a child, whether that be for example, through unexpected stunted growth in the womb, a problem with the placenta or an undiagnosed or missed infection.
