Today'sDaily Mailhas a large, graphic story about how doctors atJames Paget Hospital in Norfolkleft a premature baby to die because he was born just two days too early. The Trust explained" "Like other acute hospitals, we follow national guidance from the British Association of Perinatal Medicine regarding premature births."
Jayden's mother, Sarah, kept asking for the doctors. But the midwife said, "They won't come and help, sweetie. Make the best of the time you have with him" Sarah begged one paediatrician, "You have got to help," only for the man to respond: "No we don't." Sarah Capewell cuddled her child and took precious photos of him, but he died in her arms less than two hours after his birth.
