Real Lives – A Sleeping Baby

This is the story about Maria’s sleeping baby, medical negligence and two mothers who suffered needlessly as a result.

Maria feel pregnant in 2000, and she was due in January 2001. When she had a scan at 5 months, she knew something was wrong, the baby was not moving, but she was assured that everything was fine. In January 2001 she had a traumatic labour, ending in a caesarian. The revelations that followed have taken her 17 years to be able to accept and speak out about for the first time.
