Post-partum Care Complaints & Treatment Delays

Following the birth of a child, mothers will continue to receive close monitoring and pain relief in order to maintain a steady progression of health. However, instances may arise where the level of post-partum care falls below the expected standard resulting in distressing circumstances for the mother and their loved ones.

  • Lack of pain relief following natural, assisted birth or birth through caesarean section
  • Bowel and bladder problems, perineum tears, scarring to the vagina and stomach, open wounds, nerve damage and blood clots
  • Lack of care regarding bereavement and post natal depression
  • Problems with lactation and nursing
  • Failures and errors in treating post natal infection
  • Lack of care with vitamin and iron deficiency
  • Midwifery breach of conduct and negative midwifery behaviour
