A couple sues Dr for malpractice in death of baby! Only read if not faint of heart!

Newborn’s Decapitation at Birth Prompts Malpractice Lawsuit

Missouri Couple Sues Doctors, Pregnancy Clinic After Botched Birth

By William Browning | Yahoo! Contributor Network – Fri, Oct 12, 2012







A Missouri couple filed a lawsuit Sept. 28 against four defendants for a birth gone horribly wrong. The New York Daily News reports Friday that Arteisha Betts and Travis Ammonette of Florissant, Mo., claim their newborn son, Kaden Travis Ammonette, died while in the birth canal. The baby's head was allegedly decapitated from its neck when the doctor tried pulling the baby out of the birth canal.




* The media report claims court documents reveal Dr. Susan Moore told the couple in February 2011 their baby would have to be born with a Caesarian section because his abdomen was too large. The delivering doctor allegedly refused to perform a Caesarian and instead chose for a vaginal birth. The attending doctor, Gilbert Webb, then supposedly did not allow the couple to go to another hospital.




* Courthouse News Service states Betts and Ammonette went to St. John's Mercy Hospital on March 22, 2011, when the mother started having contractions. She was 28 weeks and five days into her pregnancy.




* The lawsuit alleges Kaden's head came out normally, but the abdomen got stuck in the birth canal. The doctor then allegedly tried traction on the baby's head and then the head became separated from the cervical spine.

* The story gets worse. At the point, the plaintiffs say blood from the baby's neck splattered into the labor and delivery room in plain sight of the mother and father. The couple then claims the doctor did the unthinkable --Webb supposedly pushed the baby back into the uterus and ordered an emergency Caesarian section.




* To make matters even more disgusting, the couple claims Webb then started performing the emergency procedure on the mother before she was sedated. This caused Betts "significant physical pain and suffering," according to Courthouse News Service's reading of the complaint.




* The New York Daily News article shows a picture of Betts' tattoo she received after the baby's death. The newborn's hand prints are inscribed in Betts' left shoulder with the date "3-22-11." The article states the defendants refused to comment for the story.




* TruTV reveals Betts, 21, and Ammonnette, 20, conceived a child via in-vitro fertilization. Midwest Maternal & Fetal Medicine specializes in complicated pregnancies. Both doctors, Moore and Webb, work for the clinic.




* A search of Missouri Case Net records reveals Betts and Ammonette are represented by Brian Patrick Millikan of Millikan Wright, LLC. The attorney once served as a police officer for the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department before opening his own law firm in 2006. Millikan specializes in personal injury, criminal, traffic and DWI cases.




* Four defendants are listed in the case. Midwest Maternal & Fetal Medicine, Signature Medical Group, Webb and Moore are being sued for unspecified damages in a wrongful death and medical negligence lawsuit.




* The statute of limitations for medical negligence cases is two years in Missouri. That time would have expired in March 2013.

After I read the story to my husband, I said if you were standing there watching the birth of our child and saw blood spurt and then the dr put the child back in that if he didn't beat that dr to within an inch of his life, I would beat both of them to death after I was able to get off the table. I can't even imagine.

Re: A couple sues Dr for malpractice in death of baby! Only read if not faint of hear

Just awful but I have questions:

- What is Dr. Moore's relationship to the plaintiffs? From the story it seems Dr. Webb is the plaintiff's ob/gyn.

- Why exactly did Dr. Webb opt for a vaginal delivery? (I think I know why but I'm interested in what discovery turns up)

- Why did Dr. Webb surgically decapitate the baby's head during the c-section?

From what is known, Dr. Webb screwed up BIG time. If one performs the Mcroberts maneuver and the baby still won't come out, the problem is usually not a shoulder dystocia. Lawyer will be ALL over that.

Such a tragic mess.

The decapitation took place when the Dr. tried traction which I guess is those prong things and was pulling on the baby's head.

There are a lot of questions to the story, hopefully all will come out and make everything clear like was the baby's abdomin too big for delivery at 7 months?

I looked up another source for the story and apparently, during the c-section, he also surgically severed the baby's head. http://www.courthousenews.com/2012/10/02/50841.htm

And since the drs work in a clinic for high risk pregnancies you would think that a large abdomen coupled with a premature delivery would be right up his alley.

I looked up Dr. Webb and he trained at Baylor COM and did his residency at Emory. That's world class training. It's not like he went to some Caribbean med school.
I will be following this story.
