Wednesday, June 14, 2006Without home birth or rooming in, another bit of anecdotal "evidence" of what can go wrong when mom and baby are separated.
Garcia's joy over her new baby boy Marcelino is tempered by worry over his health.
Monica Garcia, mother: "They tell me something went wrong, and my heart just dropped."
The something wrong was that Marcelino was mistakenly given to another mother -- a stranger also named Garcia, who breastfed him, not realizing it wasn't her son.
Yeeks...though quite honestly, I can't imagine NOT knowing that it was my baby. I mean maybe the other mom had a section or was really foggy from medication or something?
