But in a rare medical situation to save only the mother at the expense of the infant the baby also came out alive. Speaking to New Era, the ministry's senior public relations officer Ester Paulus said investigations of the incident found that the way the doctor treated the patient was in accordance with the prescribed standing health procedures. "It was indeed emotional and sensitive when the baby came out alive while they were expecting it to be dead, but there was no negligence, the treatment was according to the norm," Paulus said. She added that both the mother and the baby are doing very well and that chances of survival for the baby are very high. to read more click here: allafrica.com
