Obstetrics / Birth injury to the fetus

Neonatal death

Death of the baby immediately or soon after delivery

Success story

After an apparently uneventful pregnancy, Melanie collapsed 4 minutes after being born and died despite efforts to resuscitate her. The post-mortem reported that the cause of death was intrauterine pneumonia with the enterococcus bacteria. PMS Expert Report concluded that this was a rare and tragic case: it is extremely unusual for a baby to deteriorate so rapidly in this way. However there was no case for negligence, as the pregnancy and labour were managed appropriately. The case was dropped.
