An incompetent cervix threatens your pregnancy

A woman's cervix is the structure that contains the developing fetus inside of her uterus. When she goes into labor, the cervix will thin out and dilate, allowing the baby to pass through. Some women have a cervix that is considered incompetent. These women are at an increased risk of losing their baby because the cervix begins to open too early in the pregnancy.

Doctors must be able to make good decisions

As we discussed last week, our country's doctors are overworked and on the verge of burnout. These doctors are still charged with making decisions that can mean the difference between life or death. When a doctor does make an error, we can help you to hold the doctor accountable for the error by filing a medical malpractice claim.

Proper hand washing in hospitals is crucial

The last thing that you want when you go into a hospital, especially if you are only heading there to have a baby, is to leave sick. If the employees of the hospital don't follow proper hand washing procedures, there is a chance that you will come into contact with germs that can cause you to become sick.
