A MUM was horr*f!ed to find her newborn baby’s face scarr*d – after doctors acc!dentally slashed her with a scalpel during a caesarean section. Darya Kadochnikova, 19, made the shock!ng discovery after she was f*rced to have a C-section when her baby “changed position” in the womb.
The teenager, from Russia, had planned a natural birth in a public hospital but was told a C-section would be a safer option.
Darya was sedated with IV anaesthet!c after the epidural didn’t work for her because she could still feel the !ncis*on. When she woke up, Darya found a deep c*t next to her daughter’s nose, beneath her right eye. According to the Russian media, the new mum was told by medics her newborn baby “shouldn’t have moved too much” during the procedure. Darya was reportedly struck down with a high fever following her C-section and is currently taking antibiotics.
However, she is now breastfeeding her daughter. Doctors at Norwich University Hospital however said the scar was “very unlikely” to have been caused by a scalpel.
Similarly, another mum was left fur!ous in 2017 after her baby was left with an inch-long scar on her head after a “botched” C-section. What is a caesarean section?- A caesarean section, or C-section, is an operation to deliver your baby through a c*t made in your tummy and womb.The c*t is usually made across your tummy, just below your bikini line.A caesarean is a major operation that carries a number of r*sks, so it’s usually only done if it’s the safest option for you and your baby.Around one in four pregnant women in the UK has a caesarean birth.
A caesarean may be recommended as a planned (elective) procedure or done in an emergency if it’s thought a vaginal birth is too r*sky.Planned caesareans are usually done from the 39th week of pregnancy.
A caesarean may be carried out because: Your baby is in the breech position (feet first) and your doctor or midwife has been unable to turn them by applying gentle pressure to your tummy, or you’d prefer they did not try thisYou have a low-lying placenta (placenta praevia). You have pregnancy-related high blood pressure (pre-eclampsia)You have certain infections, such as a first genital herpes !nfect*on occurr*ng late in pregnancy or untreated HIV
