Cancer survivors at risk for more pregnancy complications

A new study published by the University of North Carolina's School of Global Public Health on March 23, 2017, suggests that a woman who successfully becomes pregnant after having being diagnosed with cancer at a young age is at an increased risk for complications during pregnancy. This discovery was made after researchers studied more than 15,000 births to women between the ages of 15 and 39 in the state.

Factors that increase the risk of injuries during birth

Even when a birth goes well and is a success, it can be difficult and painful. When the child is injured in the process, it can drastically increase the costs, the emotional trauma, and the stress of the situation. There are some factors that could indicate that it's a high-risk birth, including:

Childbirth injuries: Women not getting needed treatment

United States experiencing a shortage in maternal health services

Over the next decade, the number of babies born in the United States is expected to increase sharply. Medical organizations and scholars say that dramatic charges have to be made in order to ensure the medical needs of their mothers are met.

Medical malpractice and military members

When someone suffers because of the negligence of a doctor, nurse, surgeon or other medical professional, he or she has a right to file a medical malpractice lawsuit against those she believes are responsible. This is true for most people in the United States; however, it is not true for active duty military personnel.
