This was a stillbirth case whereby the Plaintiff suffered antepartum haemorrhage (APH) during the course of her pregnancy as a result of which she was admitted to hospital for monitoring. Her baby was small for dates and there was excessive fluid noted at 30 weeks. This was a high risk pregnancy. Unfortunately, there was failure to continue and/or restart CTG monitoring in the face of a pathological tracing on the morning the Plaintiff sadly lost her baby in utero. Had the appropriate care been afforded, this baby would have been delivered by emergency Caesarean section and survived. The Plaintiff’s case was settled in the High Court in September 2012 and she received substantial damages.
