Every new parent who holds a new child in their hands for the first time is usually very nervous. As a result newborn babies are often first handled by their doctor. You can imagine how shocking it must have been for this new mother Kristal Amezquita to witness her trusted Dr. drop her newborn baby on the floor right after it was born. But the horrible situation didn’t end there. The embarrassed doctor had the nerve to say “it’s okay, you’re young, you’ll have more, you are okay.”.

Amezquita had a horrible pregnancy. When she was just 21 weeks pregnant she was admitted to the hospital after labor began. She arrived at the hospital with sharp pains in her stomach and in excruciating pain. As soon as she arrived the nurses knew it was an emergency situation and called the doctor right away. When the doctor arrived he came with bad news. Crystal explained, “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.”

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.

She also stated “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?” Her family members were also devastated at the news and Amezquita told the doctor she wanted to choose the second option. She wrote, ” 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.”


Kristal Continued “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.” She was soon moved to another bed and then began the process of pushing the baby out. Amezquita wrote, “After two pushes I was asked if I wanted to hold him, but I wanted to deliver the placenta first.”

After the horrible moment when the baby have been dropped Kristal stated “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. 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.”.

At Birth the baby weighed only 10 ounces. A memorial service was planned soon after the horrible incident.
