CHILDBIRTH AND MATERNAL HEALTH LAW

Are you pregnant or considering becoming pregnant, and want to make sure that you have optimal support and that your rights are respected when you give birth? Hayes-Klein Law can help you communicate with your providers during pregnancy, in advance of childbirth, to ensure that your rights are respected during labor and birth.

If you have suffered injury from the violation of your rights during childbirth in the last two years, we may be able to help you pursue accountability for your mistreatment and its impact on you and your family.
