Newborn is left with scar after doctors cut her face during C-sectionJan 29, 2021 | 🚀 Fathership
A newborn baby girl has been left with a scar on her cheek after doctors accidentally cut her face during a caesarean delivery.
Russian mother Darya Kadochnikova, 19, had initially planned a natural birth in a public hospital but she was told a C-section would be a safer option after her baby reportedly 'changed position' in the womb.
The teenager was sedated with intravenous anaesthetic after the epidural didn't work for her because she could still feel the incision.

According to Russian media, the young mother was told by doctors her newborn girl 'shouldn't have moved too much' during the procedure.
The mother was reportedly struck down with a high fever following the C-section.
Despite currently taking antibiotics, she is reportedly breastfeeding her daughter.
