Use of forceps causes baby’s deat

Dr Mohie El-Khadem, from Prestbury Avenue, Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire, was charged of the death of a girl baby. // Olivia Rowlings died shortly after birth at a Shropshire hospital because Dr El-Khadem who delivered her used excessive force. The doctor said that he used a suction device and forceps because the baby was not in the right position.

A Birmingham Crown Court jury was said that Olivia Rowlings was born at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital on May 14, 2002, and died after eight hours due to serious head and brain injuries. Dr El-Khadem was charged with her manslaughter and was accused of failing to carry out proper examinations during labor.

He was also accused of using excessive force to pull the child out which caused the baby to suffer serious head and brain injuries. But he denies the charge. William Davis QC, prosecuting, said that Olivia's mother, Julie Rowlings had suffered a back problem and she had been in and out of hospital. The lawyer said doctors had decided to induce her child a week early so they could treat her back.

As she was experiencing a slow labor she was taken to the operating theatre because of the dangers her daughter was facing. Mr Davis said that proper examination of the mother was not done before unsuccessfully trying to use a suction device to rotate the baby's head. He also said that a student midwife said that Dr El-Khadem was leaning back and sweating as he applied traction to the cup.

He also said that if he had made a proper examination of Mrs. Rowlings then he would have realized that a Caesarean section might be more appropriate. Mr Davis told the panel that the doctor was negligent and his conduct amounts to a criminal offence of manslaughter due to gross negligence.
