NH Birth Injury Malpractice Suit Settled for $730,000

A Concord NH midwife who had surrendered her license last year settled a birth injury medical malpractice lawsuit for $730,000. This is the second lawsuit Concord midwife Jeanne Browne has settled in the past two months. In June, Browne settled a lawsuit filed against her after a woman had to undergo a hysterectomy after an infection developed while she was under Browne’s care.
According to the Concord Monitor, “Browne, who founded the Concord Birth and Wellness Center, voluntarily surrendered her license last June following an investigation by the state Midwifery Council into a series of complaints about the care she provided her patients. The complaints, which came from Concord Hospital, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center and an obstetrician, alleged that Browne hadn’t managed cases appropriately, failing to consult with obstetricians about high-risk pregnancies.”
