The Loss of a Child

(Rocky Piont Sonora Mexico)


I'm 40 years old I just had a child on March 15, 2012 and he passed away on March 17, 2012 because the doctors at Rocky Point waited to long to transport him to the children's hospital at Hermossillo Sonora.

He was born ay 9:30 a.m and they didn't take him until almost 7:00 p.m at night. They don't have incubators with respirators on them for newborns here in Rocky Point. I'm from Mexico and I had no money to pay for an ambulance for my baby. I just thought that people should know.



I am terribly sorry to hear about your newborn. I am a mother and can't imagine how painful it must be to have lost your baby. I hope that one day you can make sense out of such a horrible tragedy.

My heart goes out to you.
