Mother Suing Birmingham Clinic for Medical Negligence
Mothers-to-be put a lot of thought into how – and where – they want to give birth to their babies. And a lot of what influences that choice is how hospitals represent themselves. In Birmingham, a recent lawsuit accuses Brookwood Women’s Health of deceitful marketing and medical negligence, relating to promises they made to one mother wanting a natural childbirth. Cody Owens, of the weekly newspaper WELD, is following the story and spoke to WBHM’s Rachel Lindley.
Nick Patterson is the editor for WELD for Birmingham, a weekly newspaper covering news and politics, arts and culture and community engagement in the Magic City. Patterson joins WBHM each Thursday during All Things Considered to discuss WELD's top stories.
