Doctors Take Mother In For A C-Section, Can’t Find The Baby - Realize They’ve Made A Huge Mistake

A UK woman went to the hospital to bear her fourth child, but was having difficulty with the birth. Then, when her doctor performed an emergency C-section, it turned out she’d already given birth naturally just moments before.

Amber Hughes saw the look of shock on everyone’s face when the doctor tried to deliver their son via C-section at 30 weeks.

“It was horrific. I was expecting my bundle of joy to be passed to me, but instead I watched panic spread over doctors' faces,” Hughes commented.

The doctor had cut open her belly to discover there was no baby inside.

“I didn't even receive an apology. The doctor just explained that my baby had already began his descent in the birth canal when they cut me open and it was an odd situation,” Amber remarked. “I now have a visible scar that wasn't needed, and I'm still recovering from my C-section.”

The couple have filed a claim against the hospital, saying it took at least two minutes for the medical staff to realize the baby was lying on the sheet between Amber’s legs.

“I was literally going into meltdown, where had my baby gone? It couldn't just disappear,” Amber said. “Suddenly we heard something. Then they found Olly under the sheet, having passed naturally.”

Her new baby named Olly was premature, and was a mere 3 pounds, 6 ounces when he was born. He and his mom were discharged from the hospital around a month later.

“I'm thankful my baby is okay, but we'll never be able to forget the day the doctors lost our baby,” Amber commented in an interview.
