One young boy dreams of kicking a football one day. Had it not been for a hospital blunder, however, at the then North Staffordshire Hospital during his birth in April 1998, his ambitions would have probably been set much higher.
On the day his mother was brought to the hospital, she expected nothing but a straightforward labor and delivery. She had suffered no complications when she gave birth to the boy’s sister. Everyone expected the second birth to be just as smooth, claims a nurse.
However, the hairdresser mother experienced high blood pressure. This is the death knoll on a pregnancy, though; it is a fairly common complication. Many women have high blood pressure and it doesn’t lead to complications. After all, think about what the body is going through during a pregnancy. A heart is pumping blood for two individuals and the lungs are breathing for two and the stomach is eating for two.
