The birth of a child is supposed to be the happiest moment in a family's life. There's supposed to be a beautiful shimmer of sunlight in the background, and all of the people in the delivery room are supposed to be in awe of this newborn baby that you have just welcomed into the world. There may not be triumphant, heartwarming music playing while this amazing moment happens, but despite all of this hyperbole, the truth is that the birth of a baby is a tremendous moment. Nothing should ruin it.
And yet far too often, unfortunate mistakes during a birth occur at the hands of doctors, surgeons or nurses. These mistakes not only ruin this moment, they potentially could ruin the newborn's life -- and devastate the family as a result.
