Pregnancy and Birth Injury Claims

Prolapsed Uterus and Pelvic Organ Prolapse

A prolapse of the uterus (womb) happens when the uterus bulges/pushes down into the vaginal canal. Other pelvic organs can also prolapse into the vagina. Pelvic organ prolapse (including the uterus) is more likely in cases where labour was particularly long or difficult or where the baby was particularly large. 

Usually this condition is not life threatening but it can greatly affect the mother’s quality of life and wellbeing with symptoms of urinary incontinence, pain during sexual intercourse and a general feeling of heaviness in the vagina and/or perineal area. 

Most prolapse cases can be managed through pelvic floor exercise. However, if a woman suffers a serious prolapse, more invasive treatment such as a hysterectomy or surgical repair of the pelvic floor muscles might be required.

If you have suffered from prolapsed related injury which you believe was caused or exacerbated by medical negligence, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
