Information and support in one place.

Pelvic organ prolapse is when the pelvic organs drop because of the reduced support of the vagina. Child birth, vaginal or assisted, can cause this injury.

Perineal area injuries:

  • Nerve damage
  • Pelvic pain
  • Muscle damage

Child birth can cause injury to the perineal area such as nerve damage, pelvic pain and muscle damage. These injuries can happen naturally when delivering a baby or surgically to help with the birth process.

Legal advice.

The birth of a child should be a time of happiness, excitement and celebration. Sadly, when negligent mistakes are made by medical professionals the result is pain, heartache and frustration for parents and the wider family.

If you believe that you have a birth injury negligence claim in relation to any wrong or mistreatment you received during birth, then please contact a member of our medical negligence specialist team today. We are dedicated to your best interests and can advise you on how to proceed. If after talking to us you decide not to take matters further you are under no obligation to do so and you will not be charged for our initial advice session.
