Type 1 diabetes affects several people in the Houston area. This type of diabetes can be a serious condition for those who do not manage it. For women who are pregnant there are risks that can lead to a birth injury if a medical provider fails to treat their condition.
Houston residents who are expecting a baby generally have an idea of how they want their child's birth to go, sometimes even having a written birth plan. However, with the number of C-sections drastically climbing, many women are not able to achieve the type of birth they want. Obstetrical complications are rarely known in advance. Parents should go into the birth process being prepared for anything to happen.
Thousands of babies are born each year in Houston. The vast majority of them are born without incident to families who have waited for months in anticipation for them to arrive. However, not all births go as planned and a birth injury could occur.
