My OBGYN Did Not Give Me A Cerclage And I Lost My Baby. Is This Medical Malpractice?

Posted by Frank Spector | Dec 24, 2013 | 0 Comments

Some women are unable to carry a baby because they have a weak cervix.  The medical term is called an incompetent cervix.  If a woman has lost a baby before due to a weak cervix, the obgyn should be thinking that the next pregnancy is at risk for the same thing.

If a woman begins to dilate but is not having contractions, her cervix will begin to open up.  This can be stopped by placing a special kind of stitch to hold the cervix closed. This is a cerclage.

If an obgyn does not put in a cerclage at the right time, a miscarriage can occur.  This may be a medical malpractice case.

If you have any questions about cerclage, call us toll free at 1-800-299-HURT.
