A new mum is suing the New Jersey hospital where she gave birth, claiming she breastfed someone else’s baby for 20 minutes after nurses made a “terrible mistake”.
39-year-old new mum Melissa Richman says she was extremely depleted and medicated after undergoing a c-section when the incident occurred at Valley Hospital, Ridgewood, in September last year.“
“It was the middle of the night. I had just had a very serious, three-hour C-section. I was extremely sick from all the medication. I was not in my right mind, and I didn’t think to check,’’ she explained to the New York Post.
