Unrelated to the central issue, but...the mother was 400 pounds. Did the obstetrician advise her to keep her weight under control and warn her of the danger of gaining so much weight? 400 pounds is a bit much even if you are carrying multiples.
Sad story. Shame on the defendants.
No, it isn’t related at all, but I knew someone would have to bring it up. Lots of overweight women do fine in pregnancy and lots of thin or “normal” weight women have problems.
