Baby Girl Left With Gash On Her Face After Doctors Accidentally Cut It During Caesarean – Video
A MUM was horrified to find her newborn baby’s face scarred – after doctors accidentally slashed her with a scalpel during a caesarean section.
Darya Kadochnikova, 19, made the shocking discovery after she was forced 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 anaesthetic after the epidural didn’t work for her because she could still feel the incision.
When she woke up, Darya found a deep cut 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.
It comes after a Brit mum last year claimed her baby had been left scarred for life after medics accidentally cut under her tot’s nose.
Doctors at Norwich University Hospital however said the scar was “very unlikely” to have been caused by a scalpel.
Similarly, another mum was left furious in 2017 after her baby was left with an inch-long scar on her head after a “botched” C-section.
