To have a newborn child get stitches as a result of being cut on the face during a C-section procedure is naturally heartbreaking. But, unfortunately, this is the situation of a newborn child, Kyanni Williams. She is scheduled to have thirteen stitches for the deep wound across her left cheek following her birth in Denver, Colorado.
Kyanni’s family has been left devastated. In particular, Mom Reazjhana Williams has told Fox 31 that she’s still trying to understand what happened during the birth. Husband Damarqus Williams said the incident is upsetting and that his daughter Kyanni isn’t comfortable.
Kyanni Williams, born via a cesarean section, was left with a huge cut across her cheek.
“I tried to be understanding about what happened, but on top of the fact her face got cut, and a plastic surgeon had to come to do it, there’s just a lot of things I’m not understanding with the C-section. I’ve never heard of anybody having to deal with their baby’s face looking like this after a C-section.” Reazjhana explained.

She had intended to give birth naturally and was even given a pill at Denver Health to help speed up her labor. Eventually, she was rushed into surgery, where medics performed an emergency C-section. Kyanni’s grandfather Walter William is equally left heartbroken to have a granddaughter see a plastic surgeon.
“They said they couldn’t hear her heartbeat or find it, and they took her into an immediate C-section.”
“They said our baby made a sudden movement; they couldn’t hear her heartbeat or find it, and they took her into an immediate C-section,” Damarqus added. The new parents claimed doctors informed them their baby’s head was close to the placenta wall when the C-section happened. Nonetheless, Grandmother Tashaira Williams is demanding doctors be held accountable for what happened to Kyanni.

Denver Health has reacted through the release of a statement. It reads: “Denver Health has been in touch with the family directly. While this is a known medical complication in emergency C-sections, our focus is always on providing care in the best interest of the mother and child.” On the other hand, cuts on babies during C-sections are rare.
