Perineal tear injury during birth

Perineal tear and birth injury claims

It would be true to say that giving birth is amongst the most traumatic of experiences a person can endure. There are certain things that cannot be avoided as you enter the final stages of pregnancy and one rather obvious medical injury is that of a perineal tear which very often is sustained during a vaginal delivery.

If perineal tears are mis-managed due to medical negligence the damage caused can be long lasting for the mother. Such tears can lead to internal damage and result in life changing trauma.
