Southern Med Law Represents Families in Mirena Birth Injury Lawsuits Where Women Became Pregnant While Using The IUD Contraceptive And Suffered Infections, Ectopic Pregnancy and Loss of Their Babies.
Southern Med Law announces it has launched a new YouTube video that addresses Mirena pregnancy complications and birth injuries . The Mirena Pregancy Birth Injury video is intended to provide the public with important information about the dangers this intrauterine contraceptive device has purportedly poses to expectant mothers to be and their unborn baby should it fail to prevent pregnancy. The Firm is currently representing families, in Mirena pregnancy lawsuits, of children whose birth injuries were allegedly related to the Mirena IUD.
“Women do not expect to become pregnant while using the Mirena IUD, therefore pregnancies are usually not detected until the 2nd or 3rd trimesters, some after a woman has miscarried.” says Dr. François Blaudeau, the founder of Southern Med Law. “If a women becomes pregnant while using the device, retrieving the Mirena during pregnancy is risky, and sometime impossible, especially if it has migrated. In such cases, there is a chance the device may cause serious harm to an unborn child.”
Dr. Francois Blaudeau and Southern Med Law are currently representing an Alabama family in a Mirena IUD lawsuit, following their baby’s premature birth and subsequent death in 2012. After the device failed to prevent her pregnancy, the baby’s mother allegedly develop an intra-uterine infection due to the inability of her doctor to retrieve the IUD. The complaint charges that this infection caused the premature rupture of membranes, chorioamnionitis and preterm delivery before the baby’s lungs were fully developed. (Case No. 02-CV-2014-902242.00, Mobile County Circuit Court)
The Mirena IUD is a long-acting contraceptive device that releases levonorgestral, a synthetic form of progestin, directly into the uterus for up to five years. According to its labeling, fewer than 8 in 1,000 women will become pregnant while using Mirena. However, court documents indicate that a growing number of Mirena lawsuits allege that the IUD is prone to spontaneous migration, which plaintiffs contend can cause a host of complications, including uterine perforations, organ damage, infertility and scarring. A migrating IUD will also fail to prevent pregnancy.
About half of all pregnancies that occur with the Mirena IUD will be ectopic pregnancies, which must be terminated. However, a normal uterine pregnancy is also risky if Mirena is present, and may result in severe infection, miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, premature delivery and even death. If the pregnancy is to continue, the device must be retrieved, which may result in miscarriage. However, if the Mirena IUD has migrated, locating the device and removing it might not be possible.
