Warning signs of molar pregnancies

Massachusetts residents who excitedly look forward to starting or adding to their families must also contend with concerns about problems that may occur during pregnancies. Symptoms like morning sickness may seem normal or even harmless but may not always be so. The need for proper prenatal care for expectant mothers cannot be overstated given that the lives of mothers and babies are at stake.

Birth-related injuries to moms can have long-term effects

For people in Massachusetts, having a baby should be a joyous thing. The anticipation of the nine months of pregnancy finally comes to fruition and parents get to meet their new love. While caring for the needs of the new baby becomes a priority, moms also need to focus on their health. This is in part what they look to their doctors to do. However, that may not always happen.

Types of brain injuries

Most Massachusetts residents have heard about people who suffer head trauma. This can happen due to many different factors. Accidents on the sports field, in a car or elsewhere can result in brain injuries. Deprivation of oxygen to the brain can leave people with long-term function loss. Medical conditions or events like strokes can also cause permanent damage to the brain. Understanding some of the types of brain injuries that are possible is important.

Boy and mother awarded damages for cerebral palsy

While every state has its own set of laws that govern medical malpractice, it can be very interesting for residents in one state to see and learn what happens in others. Massachusetts residents concerned about birth injuries may be particularly interested in a recent jury award made to a mother and her son in Illinois.
