Were You, or Your Child, Infected During Birth?
Cook County Group B Strep Infection Attorneys
Infections of any kind can seriously jeopardize a pregnancy or cause serious injuries to both mother and baby. Obstetricians, nurses and other medical personnel carry the responsibility of monitoring the health of both mother and child to ensure that infections do not cause any problems. Any failure in that responsibility could leave the child with an illness that could have lifelong consequences.

It is also important to monitor the baby's health in the first few weeks after delivery. Infants have very sensitive immune systems, and they can be much more susceptible to infections. It is critical that the doctors accurately diagnose and treat any infections before they cause irreversible damage.
Detecting Infections That Can Transfer from Mother to Child
In the majority of cases, it is possible to screen for infections that could pass from the mother to her baby. Screening should be standard procedure leading up to the birth to ensure that any infections are treated so that they are not passed on to the baby during birth. Many of the cases we see involve such infections as group B strep and E. coli.
These infections, if left undetected or untreated in a newborn, have the potential to cause meningitis and can leave your child with a wide variety of complications, including hearing loss, epilepsy and learning or behavioral disorders.
