I am sorry for your loss. What you describe appears to be a possible medical malpractice issue and you should consult with a medical malpractice attorney in your area. He or she can further investigate the circumstances of this case and advise you as to whether you may have a viable claim.
That is terrible. You may want to contact Betsey Herd, a frequent contributor to this site. She is a hell of a lawyer; and she is not too far from you. Her firm's website is http://www.morgensternandherd.com/. But hurry because your time is limited.
Best of luck,

I am very surprised that there was no care given when your baby was born, and I am very sorry for your loss. However, in order to bring a claim for the loss of your baby, you would need to obtain expert testimony that if the care was given your baby would, more likely than not, still be alive today. At 22 or 23 weeks the experts tell us that the survival rate is below 50% even with the best of care. The sad thing is that your baby should have had a chance regardless because there are babies that do survive. Unfortunately in the legal field we are stuck with threshold of proving that 51% chance of survival.
God bless you.
