What is a wrongful birth?

Wrongful birth is the medical failure to spot/diagnose that a child will be born with a serious health condition or disability.

Advance warning could have allowed the parents to make the difficult decision on whether to terminate the pregnancy or continue.

A wrongful birth can also be pregnancy as a result of a failed vasectomy or sterilisation.
