'They stole my baby': Brazilian woman accuses hospital of taking child from her womb after doctors tell her pregnancy was 'psychological'.

Despite being in her 38th week of pregnancy and having received ultra sound prenatal treatment which recorded the growth of the child and its heart beats, the 19 year old mother woke up to the hospital claiming that no child had ever existed.

Layane Santos, 19, says she was in her 38th week of pregnancy when she was rushed to a maternity hospital in Sao Paulo, south east Brazil, with abdominal pain and blood loss.

She had received pre-natal treatment during her entire pregnancy, with nurses recording the growing size of her baby and even measuring the foetal heart beats. Ms Santos, a kitchen assistant, even had an ultra-sound scans in the final week of her pregnancy, which showed she was carrying a baby girl who weighed 7lbs and measured 42cm.

On the day Ms Santos believed her baby would be born, doctors at the Santa Casa de Maua hospital performed yet another ultrasound scan. 'The obstetrician diagnosed premature separation of the placenta and the patient was immediately transferred to the operating room.'

But doctors later claimed they found no baby in Ms Santos' womb and believed her 'pregnancy' had been purely psychological.

Daily Mail

I can't imagine how horrible this would be. Going into a hospital carrying a child and then waking up from a C-section procedure to find the child had disappeared.

The hospital has claimed that exams before the birth proved the mother wasn't carrying a child but have refused to present them.

The doctor who carried out prenatal treatment for the mother has stated that he would be a witness for the couple if they brought criminal charges against the hospital. The couple's lawyer is currently seeking judicial approval to seize hospital records.

Sounds like they may have a dingo infestation.

You are showing your age there.

If the child showed up in the scans, what happened to the child?

It could have been a dingo.

That's funny you would mention the Dingoes. I was just thinking about that when I read the headline. Do they have them in Brazil? Those sneaky bastards will get your babies if you aren't paying attention.

Old enough to recognize sparky though.

I believe she was a test subject for some unknown procedure or the victim of a very elaborate (mind you, expensive) prank.

I'd be absolutely furious, If I were a woman and somebody took my baby I would go full Man on fire on the hospital.
There is no telling what some sicko would do to the baby.

Sacrifice it for their cult?
Raise it as a sex slave for human trafficking?
Sold to cannibals?

nice going there making fun of the abduction ..

Heard a lot of similar stories dated all the way to the first half of the 20th century coming from all over the world. In most cases the doctors said the baby was born dead and didn't allow the mother to see it. When coming with the police, the body was 'lost'. In some cases nurses even admitted the trade.

Sad to hear it's still happening.

This is really really traumatic and life long harm to the mother and of course to the victimized child. I hope she chews up the line of command and shakes the foundation of that hospital with nonstop attack and investigation on every single person there. But it would tied to politicians or corporate heads somewhere a power line.

What a horrible thing to happen. People need to buddy system and have family with them even in the ER, all gowned up.

People who make fun of this baby being taken are not right in their heads, what if your child was abducted?

My thoughts...............The Doctor's did a "C" section and damaged the Baby, frightened of a Libel case, they got rid of it and said "there was no baby"..

I have no reason to think she was not carrying as she had, had scan's and knew the sex along with length of baby.
