A mother underwent a tubal ligation. Seven months later, she became pregnant with her fifth child. At 29 weeks’ gestation, the child was delivered via emergency cesarean section because of complications. During delivery it was determined that the left ovarian ligament had been ligated instead of the left fallopian tube.
