DENVER (KDVR) – A Denver family contacted FOX31 Problem Solvers for help after they underwent an emergency cesarean section, and their baby came out with a facial cut.
Instead of a celebration of pure joy, the Williams family gathered to meet their newest addition to the family with fear or disappointment.
“The fact that your grandson was born to go to a plastic surgeon, get 13 stitches, is devastating, it ‘s heartbreaking,” said Walter Williams, the baby’ s grandfather.
“Upset burns, he is not comfortable,” said the baby’s father, Damarkus Williams.
Three days ago, Kenny Williams came to this world at Denver Health. His parents said the original plan was to deliver naturally.
“They gave me pills to speed up my work, and a few minutes later I was rushed to surgery,” said Reggae Williams, the baby’s mother.
“They said that our baby made a sudden movement that they could not hear his heartbeat, to find it, they immediately transferred him to G.,” said Damarcus.
Williams said that their daughter came out of the GB section with a massive face, which required 13 stitches.
“They said his face was close to the placenta wall,” Damarcus said.
“I tried to understand what happened, but the fact that his face was cut off, the plastic surgeon had to do it, just a lot of things that I do not understand with C-section,” said Rezhhana. “I have never heard of anyone having to deal with their child’s face after such a cut.”
FOX31 Problem Solvers contacted OB-GYN offices to get some insight into how often cuts occur during C-sections.
“I’ve probably had more than 2,500 births, supported the sections, this is the first time I’ve seen them,” said Lisa Merck, a pre-practice nurse after sending the photos. “It’s one of the only things that can happen, but it’s really rare.”
