Midwife Expert Witnesses will often be required to give essential and specialist information in cases surrounding pregnancy, childbirth and postnatal care.
Midwives have dedicated years of study and clinical practice to providing care to women before, during, and after childbirth. A midwife is responsible for the wellbeing of the mother and the baby. Their work will range from home visits, clinic posts, and hospital ward and surgical positions. They are not only aware of the physical health of the mother, but also her mental health and the necessary support systems and treatments available. Additionally, it is the duty of the midwife to flag any concerns for the safety of the mother and baby in their home life.
Unsurprisingly, the knowledge and expertise of a midwife is necessary for a wide range of legal cases. For example, where a mother or new-born has had an adverse response to medication, in circumstances of high risk and mismanaged pregnancies, in cases of actual or suspected malpractice in neonatal care, during the birthing process, or in postnatal care. A midwife expert witness can assess to what extent the medical practices and procedures are at fault, or where deeply unfortunate situations were handled as aptly as possible but without the desired results.
Typically, after university training has ended, a midwife will choose or be appointed to a particular service within the diverse field of midwifery. When choosing a midwife expert witness for your case, it is crucial that you instruct someone with the expertise that are acutely relevant to your case. In doing so, their involvement, including the expert report and if necessary, expert opinion, can carry significant weight in court as well as aiding the solicitor to target their case in the best possible way.
