Induced labor / C-section
INFORMATION AND WHAT TO DO
Car accidents are extremely dangerous, but they are especially dangerous to a pregnant woman. Car accidents can cause a pregnant woman to prematurely go into labor, potentially harming both mother and child. Car accidents are the leading cause of fetal death.
Common Causes of Induced Labor/C-Section from Car Accidents
- Airbag deployment
- Forceful impact
- Stress of the accident
- Hitting the dashboard or steering wheel of the car
Pregnancy Injuries from Car Accident
- Premature Birth
- Birth Defects

How it Can Affect your Life
Induced labor or c-section procedures can affect both the mother and baby from the car accident. Induced labor can cause complications to the baby by lowering their heart rate, reducing their amount of oxygen, and putting stress on the unborn child. Induced labor can affect the lives of both mother and baby for the rest of their lives. In some, very tragic cases, premature induced labor and c-section procedures will lead to developmental problems in the baby that can effect them for the rest of their lives.
Recovery from induced labor or a c-section depends on the severity of the accident, but both the baby and the mother will need time to heal from the accident. Every case is different, but hopefully both the mother and the child will make a full recovery, and the child doesn’t suffer from any long term developmental problems.
