Nellie Rae my baby girl was born 'induced' at 37 weeks due to problems in the pregnancy. oxygen flow, measuring small, califications in the placenta which should have gone by a certain week, I had a newly qualified midwife everything was great & running smoothly until nellies heart dipped twice towards the end, after a few complications Nellie rae was born on 12.11.17 at 1.44am, she was a little dot and so perfect! Nellie had no suction in her mouth and was left to my care for a whole 12 hours before getting discharged, due problems prior to Nellie being born I was told she would be in for at least 24 hours! Nellie began to shake randomly every now & again I asked a few midwives if it was normal 'newborn jitters' I got told! Never heard of it before, Nellie & I was discharged home without any proper checks before getting sent home then 24 hours later my baby girl stopped breathing & fell asleep with the angels� I knew there was a problem & I got thobbed off. I'm asking & begging for the NHS to keep all babies in for at least 24 hours properly observed under 39 weeks! To prevent any heartache & loss of newborn babies!
