It was believed to be the happiest day of her life but unfortunately, it turned into the big tragedy of her life which leaves her in a deep shock.

Canadian mother sues hospital, she lost all her limbs after delivery

A Canadian woman named Lindsey Hubley was completely fine and there were no complications in her body at the of her delivery in March when she gave birth to her child. After fours days of delivery, she visited the hospital again and fighting with a dangerous flesh-eating disease, the CTV News reported.

The 33-year-old new mother decided to take a legal action against the hospital. On Wednesday, she took a legal action against the IWK Health Center. She also took action against some doctors in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The mother accused them of alleged negligence.

According to Hubley, she came to the hospital again with stomach pains a day after she welcomed her newborn son in the home. She said that doctors sent her home by saying that it was because of constipation.

On the very next day, she again came back but this time into emergency surgery which was later diagnosed as a flesh-eating disease called necrotizing fasciitis.

The mother has undergone several surgeries including her arms and legs amputated. The surgeries also include a total hysterectomy.

Woman’s fiance Matt Sampson told CTV News, “Having her watch the two of us leave and her sitting there for the rest of the night by herself in the hospital is absolutely tortuous.”

Sampson said, “If it was just feet, it would be one thing. If it was just arms, it would be another thing. But there’s about nine different things we’re dealing with.”

After seven months, Hubley said that she remains at bed rest at the medical center.

Her lawyer claimed that incident that created a mess in Hunley’s life could have been avoided.

Hubley’s lawyer Ray Wagner told the Canadian Press, “Our allegations are that had she been properly assessed when she presented at the hospital… a substantial part of the damage, if not all of it, could have been prevented.”
