Every so often you hear of pregnancies gone awry. TLC has an entire program dedicated to undiagnosed pregnancies. What if you were told the baby died and found out otherwise? One woman is facing such a dilemma.
A British woman was told that she had suffered a miscarriage only to find that her baby was still alive a month later.Catherine Kent, 27, and her partner Kevin Gray, 28, were devastated when they were told in June that their unborn baby had died at eight weeks. She was offered an abortion or pills to shorten the miscarriage, the Daily Mail reported.Kent chose to wait for the baby to pass naturally — and a month later was stunned when a scan revealed that her child was still alive.
The couple were elated to learn she was still pregnant, but furious with the hospital for the mistake.”They could have aborted my baby while it was alive,” Kent told the Daily Mail. “How can the hospital make a mistake like that?”Kent is due to give birth to the baby girl in February. The pair have filed a complaint with City Hospitals Sunderland NHS Trust but have yet to hear back.
