UK: Doctor Accidentally Decapitates Premature Baby During Botched Birth by revontuli(f): 9:11pm On May 10, 2018
A PREMATURE baby was decapitated inside his mum's womb when a top NHS doctor detached his body from his head during a botched birth, a tribunal heard.

The hearing was told the first-time mum was then forced to undergo a C-section to remove the head - which was sewn onto the tragic tot's body so she could hold him and say goodbye.

It is alleged Dr Vaishnavy Laxman, 41, should have given the 30-year old patient an emergency Caesarean section at Ninewells Hospital, Dundee, as the baby was in a breech position.

But it is claimed the consultant gynaecologist instead attempted to carry out the delivery naturally and told the mum to push while pulling the baby's legs.

This caused his legs, arms and torso to become detached, leaving the head still in his mother's womb, the hearing was told.

At a Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service in Manchester, the mum - known as Patient A - told Dr Laxman “I don’t forgive you - I don’t forgive you” as the doctor stared down at the floor. The mum, holding two teddy bears in her arms, told the hearing it was her first birth and had been assured she would be given a C-section in the event of a breech birth.

She told the tribunal she was not informed about what would happen next, before being told to push.

She said: ''The only pain relief I was given was a spray on my tongue.

"I was told it was meant to loosen my cervix but I was not given gas and air - I was in pain.

"I had the doctors putting their hands inside me and I had them pushing on my stomach and then pulling me down."

The grieving mum said Dr Laxman apologised after she was told her son had died - but as she didn't know what had happened she told her "it’s alright, these things happen, I forgive you".
She added: "She went away but I started screaming when I found out the full extent - I was just crying. I was upset because of the severity of his injury.

“I would never use the word stillborn, he was not stillborn he was decapitated.''

Midwife Mona Chard described the birth as "something you cannot forget and Patient A was very distressed".

Lawyer for the General Medical Council Charles Garside QC said: “Dr Laxman allegedly delivered the legs, torso and arms successfully but whilst trying to deliver the head, it got stuck in the cervix.''

Chai! What a tragedy, the worst thing to ever happen to an expectant mother. Which 21st century doctor pulls out a breech premature baby through the vagina? That's 150 shades of stupid. Even more annoying is that the C-section she was avoiding was eventually carried out to remove the severed head. That crazy quack doctor deserves to have her license revoked.

This is a case of murder.

That consultant gynaecologist should be stripped off medical qualifications and should be transferred straight to a prison facility.

So unprofessional and to think the same CS the consultant ignored to deliver the baby in one piece will still be undertaken to extract the trapped decapitated head of the baby from the womb.


Imagine the trauma the woman will have to live with .

Wack doctors who had their degrees by hook or crook in their home countries have found their way into foreign lands. Some of them are no better than cleaners yet lay claim to being doctors. Even a pig go soon wear doctor coat. SMH.

U don carry come again. Breech delivery still happen and the doctor probably lacked the technique. For first deliveries, breech delivery should be discouraged. Subsequent pregnancy, some criteria and dialogue with patient would determine the route of delivery.

Dis may be a quack doctor who bribed his way thru school. There are a lot of them here in Nigeria. Some times events/happenings lik dis wont allow one blame doz doing medical trip overseas. If they dnt forget scissors, scarpel or swabs inside a patient, they will give wrong medication. They jst want to pride themselvs by the name "I am a doctor."
