She says it will help care for her son

When we’re pregnant, we spend a lot of time thinking about what labor and birth is going to be like. We worry about how much pain there will be with each contraction and wonder if it a C-section will be necessary. But, ultimately, we want to walk out of the hospital, healthy, with a happy baby in our arms.

That’s not what happened for one family who instead walked out of the hospital with a baby who had a severe birth injury and they sued the hospital as a result.
