Doctor Accidentally Declares Newborn Infant Dead — And People Are Outraged

By Mustafa Gatollari

One of the most stressful times during my life was watching my wife go through labor during the birth of our first child. 

As much as I tried to keep cool and crack jokes and make her feel comfortable throughout the entire experience (I really didn't know how to handle it at all), I was definitely freaking out. So much so that I became an emotional void, and it burned me up that I couldn't feel anything. I can only imagine what my wife was experiencing during the entire ordeal, because there's no way I could ever understand what it's like to gestate a human being and undergo such excruciating pain, wondering and hoping the entire time both me and that kid are going to come out OK.

But I can fathom the horror this new mother felt when her doctor accidentally declared one of her babies was dead upon delivery.
