When a woman is expecting to bring new life into the world, she is not expecting any harm to be caused to her or her newborn. Unfortunately, there are risks associated with childbirth, but for the most part, unpreventable injuries and harms are not the ones one should be the most concerned with. Medical errors and mistakes could result in harm caused to the mother and baby, and these birth injuries could impact one or both of them temporarily or even for the rest of their life.
