Fetal injuries such as lacerations are avoidable yet all too common birth injury errors that often occur because the surgeon is inexperienced or mistakes are made during C-section procedures.
Hospitals normally have established safety protocols to prevent such birth injuries such as removing abdominal wall retractors before delivery; prior to incision, moving the uterine wall away from the baby; and using blunt instruments. Hospitals may have a checklist for doctors to ensure they take all the necessary precautions to prevent lacerations from happening. Birth injury lacerations can be severe and cause permanent scarring and injury.
