My ob was notified from day one I was high risk and she failed to treat me as such. My appointments were spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. I ended up miscarrying due to my cervix opening and bacteria getting in. if I was being monitored more closely the dr could have seen the cervix opening beforehand and My children may have survived. I also told the dr that my family had an history of the cervix opening prematurely and still nothing was done or monitored
Reviewing the entire medical record would be required by an experienced medical malpractice lawyer
Having a twin pregnancy is by definition a high-risk one. Additionally a family history of cervical incompetence should have triggered greater vigilance in monitoring you for the same condition. Gather your medical record and consult local counsel for further clarity. Unfortunately in medical malpractice, the opinion of the victim alone is insufficient. An OB medical expert must opine that the standard of care that you received fell below the standard to which you were entitled and that such a deviation caused your loss. Best of luck.
