Absolutely horrifying for the parents . I don't know how anyone could recover ( emotionally ) from what this woman has gone through .A team of five doctors at the Santa Isabel maternity hospital had spent hours trying to deliver the baby in the early hours of Tuesday.
The 22-year-old mother, who has three other children, told her family she knew something was wrong when she heard something 'crack'.
Gilmara Azevedo dos Santos, the woman's cousin, said "She went through a lot of suffering, it was hours and hours and a lot of pain and discomfort, with doctors pushing on her stomach, trying everything to make the baby come out." At one point, she heard a loud noise and one of the doctors said, 'Marcos, are you crazy?"
He said the mother asked what was happening but didn't get an answer.
She was rushed for an emergency Caesarian where, according to the woman, the headless body of the baby was removed.
