Perhaps you are one of many women here in Texas who enjoyed an uneventful pregnancy. You have no reason to believe that the labor and delivery will be any different.
You could compare the labor and delivery portion of your pregnancy to the landing of an airplane. The whole flight may be smooth, but in the home stretch, any number of issues could arise and cause the plane to crash.
In the majority of births, the doctor and the rest of the delivery team take all the proper precautions to preserve the health of the infant and the mother. Unfortunately, there are some cases in which medical malpractice results in birth injuries. While it is extremely difficult for parents to think about their newborn suffering such harm, it is important to do so for your baby's wellbeing.
