Completely Normal Pregnancy

The claimant’s mother says she had a completely normal pregnancy but that problems were picked up with her son’s heartbeat during labour. A specialist was called but failed to turn up and midwives took longer than necessary to deliver the baby as they were unqualified to use forceps.

Delays During Labour

The health authority always denied that the delays during the labour were the cause of her sons the cerebral palsy.

Severe Oxygen Deprivation

The judge on the case concluded that, if the specialist had arrived five minutes after being called, which was possible, the baby would have been delivered nine minutes earlier. As he did not arrive, the baby was born 15 minutes later, which could have caused severe oxygen deprivation, which caused the cerebral palsy.
