One of my best friends had a baby on Thursday her third a girl by C section. She hasn't had the best of pregnancies had loads of bleeds, bad backache and diabetes. She was praying to hang on until 38 weeks so she could go to term, during the section they nicked the placenta and the baby lost a lot of blood resulting in trauma to some of her internal organs. They pur her on a respirator in SCBU to support her breathing and her condition was critical but stable yesterday. Today I had a text message from her hubby saying they had the baby christened and it's not looking good.

The thing is her first baby was an emergency c section due to a placental abruption at 33 weeks. She was told then her baby might not make it but he pulled through and is a lovely 8 year old now. Her second boy was also heading for an abruption but they got her in time although he has a condition affecting his immune system and has spent loads of time in hospital (he's 4 now and getting better).

On top of this she has had loads of troubles with her hubby and they two of them got back together and were delighted to be having this little girl.

I so so feel for her I'm too far away to go and see her I am in bits for her, I've got everyone I know praying for this little baby girl to pull through she's just got to. It's makes you realise how lucky we are sometimes.

Aw sweetkitty - How awful. Everything crossed for the wee soul. If it's any comfort, my friends DD was born flat. She had swallowed meconium perhaps days before she was born and all her organs were poisoned and failing. They had her christened on the 2nd night. She came home after 5wks... and is now a feisty future girlfriend for my ds!

Keep us posted.

I lost a son 3 yrs ago 10 days old and it is the most heartbreaking thing you can go thru,,,,I have two gals now but you never forget......but i hope this is never an expereince anyone goes thru................

Just spoke to my friend on the phone how can I find any words of confort for her tonight, what can you say? The babies heart is failing and there's little hope her organs are shutting down.

The docs messed up somewhere along the line the registrar shouldn't have been doing the section it should have been the consultant they cut through the placenta despite the scans and the baby lost 70% of her blood. Her kidneys have shut down and her blood pressure keeps dropping. I don't understand how this could have happened in a routine section on a 38 week baby who was 7lbs 6ozs.

Sweetkitty, Xposted. Regarding that this is all due to an error of some kind.... words really do fail me.

I'm so sorry.
