New film exposes medical malpractice during the birthing process

Alabama parents may remember, or may now be experiencing, the bundle of nerves that precedes the arrival of a bundle of joy. Expecting a baby is a time of much preparation, and choosing where to give birth can be a difficult decision. Most parents likely assume that most modern hospitals are well-equipped to assist them as they bring a child into the world, but a new documentary exposes the shocking frequency of medical malpractice

The film, called "Mother May I" documents the traumas experienced by many mothers during the birth process. One of the film's stars tells a harrowing tale, in which a nurse attempted to push the baby back inside her and hold it there for some time. She suffered painful injuries, with damage that will last for the rest of her life. She is now in constant pain, and is no longer able to experience sexual intercourse. 

Other women report being bullied and coerced into procedures they do not want, like a cesarean section. While the United States does not recognize the term "obstetric violence," other countries now do. The documentary, to be released in Feb. 2019, aims to bring awareness to this often unreported situation. During the birth process, a woman is at the mercy of medical professionals, and careless action on the part of a doctor or nurse can cause injury or death to the mother and/or the child. 

If an Alabama patient is concerned that she may have been the victim of medical malpractice in these types of circumstances, steps can be taken to seek justice. Often, an experienced attorney can be a great asset to a victim. An attorney can help victims tell their story, and collect any compensation they may be entitled to for injuries suffered during a botched medical procedure.
