WATCH: Horrifying moment doctor DROPS baby on her HEAD right after birth
Content Editor / May 05 2019
A new mum has shared the terrifying moment a doctor dropped her new baby daughter on her head, straight after she was born.
Monique Rogers daughter, Morgan, slipped out of the doctor’s hands as he was cleaning her up at the Chandler Regional Medical Center in Chandler, Arizona.
Her husband, Derrick, had been filming Morgan and her twin sister Madison’s first moments when the incident occurred, and can be heard gasping in the video.
When Morgan was dropped, she lands head-first on a table and almost falls off the edge. The doctor simply picks her up again without saying a word.
Monique now says her daughter has a grade 1 hemorrhage on one side of her brain, and is worried she may suffer from long-term health issues as a result.
The new mum is now considering legal action against the hospital, and says she is desperate to prevent another family having to undergo the same stress and worry.
“I just wanted people to know what happened to my baby,” she said.
“As a mother, you’re supposed to be there to protect her and I felt like I wasn’t there to protect her when she was born.
“I couldn’t stop them from being rough with her or him holding her with one hand, I couldn’t stop him.
“I don’t know if she’ll be hurt for the rest of her life.”
The new parents are now waiting for an appointment to see a neurologist in August to determine what’s happening with their baby girl.
The couple say they have not received an apology yet from the doctor or the hospital.
