A woman is making a clinical negligence compensation claim against Scarborough Hospital after her child sustained a brain injury during her birth.
According to the Whitby Gazette, Sara Haran suffered complications during the birth of her daughter Sienna - who is now two - which meant that the child's heart stopped beating for 20 minutes.
This resulted in Sienna being given just a five per cent chance of survival by doctors at the time, but she has since defied medical professionals' wisdom by learning to crawl. It is thought that she may also have cerebral palsy, but this has not yet been formally diagnosed.
Ms Haran believes that the standard of care given to her and Sienna during the birth was not high enough which therefore led to these problems.
Consequently, she is pursuing compensation from the Scarborough and North East Yorkshire Healthcare NHS Trust, which provides healthcare services for around 240,000 people in the region.
