Congress seeks to lower maternal death rate with new law

Many people in New Mexico may believe that the United States is one of the safest places to give birth. However, research shows this is simply not true. In fact, according to USA TODAY, complications in childbirth kill around 700 women each year, and about 50,000 more suffer serious harm. About half of those who die from complications could have been saved if their doctors had taken proper care to diagnose and treat those complications.

Doctor errors deprive infants of a chance of a normal life

Women in New Mexico and around the world already know that pregnancy is not a medical condition but one of the most natural processes in human history. However, that does not mean that medical intervention is not needed from time to time in order to ensure the safety and health of the mother and/or the infant. When doctor errors occur and that needed intervention does not happen in a timely manner, the child could be robbed of the chance for a normal life.

Insufficient monitoring of newborns can lead to brain injuries

After spending nine months growing in relative comfort, an infant must travel through the birth canal and into the world. During this process, the baby's oxygen supply could be compromised in a variety of ways. If the New Mexico medical staff attending to the mother and infant during labor and delivery fails to sufficiently monitor them both and react quickly to any problems, the baby could suffer brain injuries.
