|Abstract:||Obstetric care in the United States, as judged by maternal mortality, neonatal mortality, stillbirth rates, or any other metric, has never been better. Despite this, litigation over "bad outcomes" is threatening the specialty, not only now, but into the future. Despite damage to our specialty, the injured party often benefits little, if at all, from the process. Potential solutions include an emphasis on evidence-based medicine, a qualification and review process for medical experts, and a more rational and fair health court system.|
