I just wanna get this 6 weeks check up over with and then never ever see this evil she witch doctor again!!!! I went to my daughters newborn well child checkup today and well her arm has just been kinda weird. Like she cant really lift it and she just lets it hang when i pick her up and stuff like that. Well my god sister is the same way and its cause the doctor pulled it out the socket at birth and now at 14 she cant really use that arm so i felt like i should ask the doctor today about it so maybe i could know something and without warning he hits me with a bomb shell "her collar bone is broken" :'( i just started crying. I asked what would of caused this he said it happens when the baby is stuck during birth and the mother is pushing so it just breaks to fit... my problem I DIDNT PUSH HER OUT!!! That evil monster wasonly about herself and was rushing so so cut me three times ( not needed) to fit her head and she pulled out the head, jerked on her arm to get the rest out, then grabbed and pulled on the afterbirth.after stitching me up she ran out n hasnt been seen yet. Now i am having problems and she has this broken bone. Ugh i feel so helpless and like crap:'( i have been cryin all day. Like my stepmom( we fight alot but has been alot brtter since the birth) is just telling me how i am such a great mom and its not my fault and how proud of me she is. I wish i could punch the doctor.
I'm sorry hun! My dr cut me cuz my son would've had a broken collarbone if I just pushed him out but he ended up not since I was cut. Is there a way you can file something against her?
Wow, I am sorry this happened to you and the baby. What are you supposed to do for the baby now?
Contact a lawyer, that is malpractice and the nerve damage from that injury can cause life long issues.
I'd look into legal action. That's really messed up. I'm sorry :( poor baby.
We are gonna see if we can sue but its our word vs. Hers so idk but they said she should heal and she doesnt seem to feel the pain so im happy she isnt hurting even with that but she might need PT if it dont heal right... just a wait n see type thing... it bugs the hell out of me knowing its that doctors fault n i cant do anything but again im happy she is a happy healthy baby whos only care is her family n seeingher beautiful smile everytime she sees me or SO or the grandparents.. its the best feeling. I love being a momma. But i also really dont care about sueing for money i care about my daughter n making sure she is taken care of so that her arm isnt messed up as much as possible. Lso making aure that doctor dont do that to other family... like really birthing is suppost to be happy and yes some pain comes with it but im in more pain then i should be and bout to go to the ER if it keeps up n then babygirl... ugh im mad and upset

It's not necessarily about getting money just to get it, the rationale is that the money is to be used for extra care that your child may need in the future. My brother is permanently disabled due to a "birth accident", it was no accident though it was blatant malpractice. Anyway he got a crap ton of money, and he needs it. He has epilepsy, his meds cost 1k a month, he cannot walk he requires wheelchairs, he is legally blind, he also requires 24/7 care. I'm not saying this will happen to your LO, i'm just explaining what the intention of malpractice suits are.
