Doctor Gives Woman Startling News After C-Section

A Brazilian woman entered the Alto Paranaiba Hospital for a scheduled cesarean section to deliver her unborn child that was in a breech position, and she would awaken with the requisite scarring that such a surgery leaves behind. She would then be informed that the pregnancy was all in her head.

The woman and her husband aren’t buying it, and they have reported the child as stolen to the police. Claudia Aparecida Lopes, 30, was under a doctor’s care throughout the term of the pregnancy and made regular visits at standard increments as with a normal pregnancy. The C-section was scheduled after a recent ultrasound, as her husband explains.

Claudia received pre-natal treatment throughout her pregnancy and two ultra-sound scans. At nine months, the final ultra-sound scan showed that the baby was in breech position which is why she needed the cesarean section.

“We paid for pre-natal treatment and even went for ultrasound scans. During one of the two scans the doctor told us the birth couldn't be natural because the child was sitting down, and it needed to be a cesarean,” explained Claudia's husband, Alexandro Donizete Alves.

His mother was in the waiting room on the day of Claudia’s procedure, and she was informed by the doctors that it was an imaginary pregnancy. The couple has already contacted police, and the investigation is ongoing.

Alexandro said, "My mother was waiting outside the operating room to be called, when the news came that it was just an imaginary pregnancy, that there had never been a baby in there, despite everything." He then added, "My wife had a huge cut across her belly and they simply told us that there wasn't a baby after all, it was all psychological. That's when I called the police and registered the occurrence."

Claudia's husband said that he was at most of the appointments and her doctor even recommended pre-natal vitamins. He said, "If the pregnancy was psychological, how come he accompanied the whole pregnancy. If it's true, then I must have psychological problems too, because I saw the child on the ultrasound and so did he."

The doctor claimed that he only saw Claudia twice and never administered ultra-sounds. As well, he said that all of the necessary materials were turned over to police.

Reports have emerged about several other similar disturbing incidents in Brazil, all of which have led to claims that the doctor or hospital had stolen the new mother’s baby.
