Arizona Premature Delivery Attorney
Phoenix Medical Malpractice and Negligence Lawyer
A full-term pregnancy is considered 38 weeks, or nine months. When a baby is born prematurely, there is a much greater risk of the baby sustaining some type of birth injury or health complication, as the baby's heart, lungs, and other vital organs may not be fully developed. In some cases, a newborn baby can even die if he or she is born too prematurely.
It is the responsibility of a woman's doctors and prenatal team to monitor her pregnancy and check for signs that the baby may need to be delivered early. Similarly, when a woman goes into early labor, her doctors and nurses are expected to know how to deliver the baby in a way that reduces the risk of injury to both the mother and the baby.
