What is Expected of Your Treating Doctor

Uterine ruptures occur in women during delivery for various reasons. If a woman has had a prior cesarean section and attempts a vaginal birth, is given a labor inducing medication or has an abnormally positioned fetus, there is an increased risk of uterine rupture. Although there is no definite way to tell ahead of time that a uterine rupture will occur during childbirth, the warning signs are usually clear.

A treating doctor who knows his patient's medical history should be on the lookout for possible uterine rupture, especially in a woman who has had a prior cesarean section. Some of the signs medical personnel should watch out for include:

  • Severe local pain
  • Vaginal bleeding
  • Fetal heart rate abnormalities
  • Bab'ys movement back up from a lower position

Failure to handle these signs immediately could cause complications, such as brain damage, to the baby, or it could cause fatal injuries to the mother and/or baby.
