Birth injury » Pre eclampsia

HELLP is a syndrome related to pre-eclampsia, which doctors have been aware of since the 1980s. A pregnancy that is harmed by a doctor who misses this syndrome may therefore lead to a sufferer being able to make a claim for birth injury compensation.

The name of the condition is an acronym: H for haemolytic anaemia, EL for elevated liver enzymes, and LP for low platelets. These are the three main symptoms, and may occur in the latter stages of pregnancy, or (more rarely) just after the birth.

Signs to watch for include malaise, nausea, headaches, blurred vision and tingling in the extremities. If untreated, it can lead to liver problems.

The only effective treatment is delivery of the baby. With treatment, prognosis for the mother is generally good - the maternal mortality rate is approximately 1% - but that of the baby depends on how far through the pregnancy was before symptoms of HELLP were discovered.

Mothers who suffered with HELLP may have a heightened risk of suffering in subsequent pregnancies, and should be considered at-risk by medical staff. Failing to do so may also be counted as medical negligence, should it lead to a birth injury.
