Doctor Drops Newborn Preemie On The Floor, Then Tells Mom “It’s OK, You’re Young, You’ll Have More”

After going through the worst of pains, Kristal Amezquita delivered her baby prematurely, then the doctor who handled her dropped him. Worse, he then told Kristal she was young enough to have more.

According to reports, everything seemed to be going well with her Kristal’s pregnancy, up until one moment she found herself in a hospital room, screaming from the extreme pain, just 21 weeks into her pregnancy.

She was rushed to the hospital and admitted to the Labor and Delivery ER. She couldn’t bear the excruciating pain in her stomach anymore and the nurse ran to call a doctor.

Explaining to Love What Matters, Kristal wrote, “He told me the membranes of the water bag were protruding and I was already leaking water (technically already in labor—the pain I was experiencing were contractions), the water Ian needed to survive was coming out. He said my cervix had opened up and the placenta had come into contact with the vaginal canal causing an infection. I was on the verge of fighting an infection and I had two options at this point.

“One — Expedite my pregnancy or Two — Let my body take its course. WHAT. THE. HECK. I was heartbroken, my heart was aching, my world was shattered. How did I go from being so excited to turn 21 weeks and see my baby growing in my belly to knowing I would not leave the hospital with him?”

Kristal chose the second option. She continued, ” I was still experiencing contractions and they were becoming closer in time, so the nurse asked if I wanted an epidural. After getting the epidural, comes the catheter.

“I had the catheter put in and about less than half an hour later I was in feeling so uncomfortable, I was in pain and my heart was broken. I called for the nurse because I told her I wanted the catheter out, I could feel it, but she said I had the epidural so I shouldn’t be feeling anything. While she and the OB were checking on me, my water broke. THAT IS WHEN I COMPLETELY LOST IT. I knew this was really happening, I was really losing my baby.”

The nurses quickly moved Kristal to another bed, where she began the process of delivering her baby. “After two pushes I was asked if I wanted to hold him, but I wanted to deliver the placenta first,” she explained.

The next moment, Kristal witnessed something that would haunt her for a long time to come. The young mother saw the doctor drop her little baby’s tiny body on the floor.

“I was so in shock, the OB who delivered Ian dropped him when he came out, and kept saying to me, ‘It’s okay, you’re young, you’ll have more, YOU are okay.’ How can you tell me I’M okay when I just lost my son?! I couldn’t believe what had just happened.

the other day at work a mom said “you’re not a mother but happy mother’s day” & she walked away. talking about Ian makes me happy & i always bring him up, but in that moment, my heart broke & it was too late to tell her i am a mother. my child is not physically seen but i AM a mother. i delivered, i felt contractions, i got an epidural. i am just like any other mother except i didn’t get the luxury of raising my son. God is doing that for me. 👼🏻 at the hospital the doctor told me i was young & i’d have more, he told me that it was okay bc i was okay. i don’t look happy in this photo bc i wasn’t. this is the only photo i have with Ian like this, this is all i have. so please for me, i ask that if you’re a mother to an earthside babe, you hug them tighter & take extra photos today & everyday. happy mother’s day to all the mommas out there 💕 thank you to my angel for making me a mama. i wouldn’t be who i am today without him.

“My mom said she felt like he was going to be thrown away with all the trash – the way the OB handled Ian. Since Ian was so tiny, he kind of slid right out and they failed to catch him.” Kristal revealed.

Even though Kristal didn’t get the chance to return home with her son, she will remember the moment she held him in his arms forever. “When Ian was placed into my arms, I was in love, he was perfect. He looked just like his daddy. He had the cutest little nose and lips. His body was long and thin just like his dad. He was born at 11:40 and weighed 10 ounces. After he was born my family was allowed into the room. I was in shock, I would go in and out of crying. All I wanted to do was hold my baby boy.” She wrote.

“He is never forgotten and he is always in our thoughts and prayers. I know he is in my heart and that gives me comfort.” Kristal added.

We are so sorry for your loss Kristal and sorry you had to hear such a cruel comment and for the apparent lack of professional practice.

Rest in peace, baby Ian.
