Mum sent home with wrong baby discovers mistake at bath time

A new mum discovered she had been given the wrong baby when she went to give her child a bath.

Oksana Kolesnikova, was told by nurses she had given birth to a girl.

But the 36-year-old was stunned when she gathered her four other children to give her daughter a bath.



Their little sister Masha it turned out was in fact a boy.

Oksana said: ‘I took off the pampers and saw it was a boy. I said: “Oh my God, have a look. This is not Masha, this is Misha. ‘I immediately checked the label. It said clearly I’d given birth to a girl, not a boy.’

Oksana revealed how after giving birth the baby was quickly put on her chest by doctors and midwives at her hospital in Voronezh region but she only saw the face.

The infant was quickly taken away due to a ‘risk of infection’ during the bizarre incident at the Liski regional hospital, in Russia.

‘I asked the nurse once if I’d had a boy or girl, and she did not say a word,’ the mother told Russian Channel One.

‘I asked again, no reply at all. On the third time, she shouted back that it was a girl.’

Confusingly documents given to the mum by the hospital said her baby was female including the baby’s medical passport.

In some Russian hospitals there is very little contact between mother and baby after giving birth.

Oksana said: ‘I was shocked and called the hospital to tell them they had given me a boy.’ She feared the baby had been swapped in the hospital after a spate of such distressing cases coming to light in Russia.

A DNA test did show she had been given the right child but Oksana is not convinced and wants an outside investigation.

Deputy chief doctor at Liski regional hospital, Marina Milashenko, said: ‘The midwives were very busy. They were extremely tired. ‘That day they had six births.

‘Of course, we are very sorry that such a situation took place but it did not damage anybody’s health or life.

‘This is the main thing. Documents can be corrected. Once again we send our apologies to the mother.’
