In every labor and delivery, there are numerous people who have the job of monitoring and attending to the mother and unborn child. There are nurses. If the child is to be delivered via Caesarean section, an anesthesiologist and nurse anesthetist will be on hand. The most important person involved in the care of the mother and unborn child is the obstetrician. He or she has a number of important duties in the labor and delivery process. The most important duty every obstetrician has is to diagnose and treat problems related to the pregnancy. A mother or child's condition can change drastically in a brief period of time. Obstetricians must be able to make correct decisions in this short span. In some cases, the wrong decision can lead to fatal or tragic consequences to the child and/or the mother. In some cases, these actions or inactions constitute malpractice.
