How To Have A Safer Childbirth, With Attorney Gina Mundy

This week we discuss safety during childbirth with Gina Mundy, an attorney specializing in childbirth cases.

For over 20 years, Gina’s focus has been investigating and analyzing mistakes that arise during labour and delivery. She has spent countless hours meticulously scrutinizing childbirth cases, conducting interviews with delivery teams, and thoroughly examining medical records to gain an in-depth understanding of every decision made during labour and delivery. Throughout her career Gina has travelled the United States of America, engaging with healthcare professionals such as doctors, nurses, and midwives to explore all aspects of labour and delivery. These interactions have provided her with invaluable insights, enabling her to appreciate the diverse perspectives prevalent in different regions of the country.

In June 2023, Gina’s book “A Parent’s Guide to a Safer Childbirth” was published. The book helps parents to avoid the mistakes during childbirth and have a healthy baby.

Instead of getting involved after a mistake was made, Gina is getting involved before childbirth to help prevent the mistakes.
