Emergency C Section Defined By Birth Injury Attorneys

An emergency C-section is exactly what it sounds like:  a cesarean section which must be accomplished quickly in order to save the life of the baby. Oftentimes cesarean sections are delayed either because the staff was not prepared and didn't recognize the problems with the baby or the doctor was not in the hospital and prepared to perform a cesarean section. If the baby is in fetal distress the baby can have as little as 15 minutes before damage begins to set in. An emergency cesarean section is an emergency where every second counts.
