Baltimore, MD -- (ReleaseWire) -- 08/22/2017 -- Gershon, Willoughby, Getz & Smith, LLC recognizes prenatal abruptions as a cause of birth defects and is defending mothers who've suffered from them. Because of their medical experiences, the lawyers at Gershon, Willoughby, Getz & Smith, LLC are familiar with the pregnancy and labor process. Since their days as medical students, they've even continued to observe and study the many stages of pregnancy and fetal development.

As the Baltimore area lawyers are aware, the birth injury of cerebral palsy can sometimes be the result of prenatal abruptions that occur during pregnancy. When a mother's placenta peels away from her uterus, her baby is deprived of valuable oxygen and nutrients, harming the mother as well. Prenatal abruptions range in terms of severity, the point of separation, and the age of the pregnancy. Though they are encountered primarily in the third trimester of pregnancy, some abruptions arise later than the 20th week. Partial abruptions require that a mother rest, as her fetus's heart rate is monitored.

Usually, the symptoms of a placental abruption are as clear as excess bleeding, uterine pain or back pain. When symptoms are more overt, a doctor should immediately diagnose the condition. Gershon, Willoughby, Getz & Smith, LLC also knows that abruptions can be silent in nature, too. By neglecting to monitor a fetus's heart, doctors can directly cause the birth injury of cerebral palsy or any other conditions and ailments.

Any mother or family who's suffered birth injuries or stillbirths due to prenatal abruptions should contact the lawyers at Gershon, Willoughby, Getz & Smith, LLC and seek their legal counsel. To learn more about how they can help, please visit them online at
