Shocking Photos Of A Baby Reveal How She Is Born 'Black And Blue'

Scarlett, who was born last year in February, suffered a lot of injuries due to her forceps delivery and that has scared her mom from having another baby. Baby Scarlett was a rare case and even after using the vacuum pump, the baby wasn't getting delivered, and the doctors were forced to make it a forceps delivery. This process caused injuries to the baby's head, and she got bruises all over the face as well. 

It was a pretty sad story because the baby was admitted to the ICU for a few days and she was under critical observation only due to her injuries. The baby was apparently healthy, but the forceps injury turned her hospital stay longer than usual.
