The drama took place on January 7th Roma, at the Pertini hospital. A three-day-old baby died. The mother, a 30-year-old Italian girl, would have fallen asleep and her child is died of suffocation. The prosecutor has opened an investigation file for manslaughter. The police have seized the medical records and the personnel on duty have been identified. The results of the histological tests are awaited. And we try to understand why the baby remained in his mother’s bed without anyone noticing. To the disgrace for the loss of the son is added the enormous sense of guilt but also the determination to get justice and to make sure that other families don’t have to suffer what they have suffered. The father of the newborn – interviewed by Il Messaggero- he said: “We have read on the web the comments of many women who have complained of being left alone after giving birth at Pertini. All exhausted from childbirth. And all of them unable to take proper care of a newborn baby”.

Then she has spent 17 hours in labor before giving birth: “She was exhausted but they immediately brought her the baby to breastfeed. And they also demanded that she change his diaper herself. But she couldn’t stand up” – explained the young man. The woman would asked to take the baby to the nursery for a few hours to rest a bit. But the answer had been that it couldn’t. When she called her partner to tell him what he was experiencing, it was already too late. The father of the little victim explains that when the doctors realized that the newborn had suffocated to death, they didn’t even wake up mom. “They didn’t even wake her up. We don’t know who noticed it. At 1.40 in the morning death was declared. Many women are left alone in the wards. Also due to the anti-Covid restrictions. Which prevent family members from helping new mothers. The protocols should be reviewed. If it hasn’t happened to others it’s only because they were lucky“-ha finished the man. Even, during the two-year period of the pandemic, a woman in the fifth week of pregnancy she was not admitted to the hospital why he hadn’t done the molecular swab: after half an hour she lost the baby.
