The baby's mother believes that it was the doctors who cut her daughter's face during the operation.
On April 15, 2018, 23-year-old British woman Amber Woland from Norwich, East Anglia was admitted to a local hospital with a prolonged labor. The doctors did everything possible to make the birth happen naturally, but after 75 hours, Amber was forced to undergo an emergency caesarean section.
The midwives took their daughter Amber right after the operation to give her mom some rest and rejuvenation. After a while, the mother was informed that her daughter was born with a deformity on her face - under the very nose of the baby there was a small cut, as if a knife had been passed over her face.
Doctors said the baby was likely injured while in the womb. However, after several days in the hospital, one of the midwives shared with her mother her fear that the baby could not get such injuries when she was in Amber's stomach. Later this was confirmed by a plastic surgeon who examined the girl after she was discharged from the hospital.
He noted that there is nothing sharp in the female uterus that could hurt the baby's face so badly.
In the near future, the baby will need at least three plastic surgeries to minimize the consequences of the cut. The girl's mother is very worried about her daughter's future. "This incident undermined my faith in our medicine," Amber told reporters of the METRO newspaper.
Representatives of the hospital, in turn, apologize to the woman, and insist that they have already explained to her mother more than once why they consider it unlikely that the baby was injured as a result of a scalpel cut. They added that they are ready to explain the reasons for the incident again and prove their innocence.
