The Department of Health and Human Services estimates that approximately 60 percent of labor and delivery complications and birth injuries are preventable. Of the many potential causes of serious birth injuries, COMMUNICATION between healthcare providers with each other and with the birthing mom is the most common reason cited for injury.
Resilient Mom was created to help ensure education and communication between a woman of color, her community resources, and her birthing team.
Communication errors, along with medical malpractice, hospital negligence or other mistakes during childbirth account for the largest share of most hospital’s risk management budgets. With out-of-court settlements for a neurological birth injury or labor and delivery malpractice hovering over a million dollars, hospitals choose wisely to invest in a low-cost, high impact platform like Resilient Mom that helps to improve birth experience communication in all stages of pregnancy, labor and delivery, and postpartum.
