A UK woman who didn't know she was pregnant lost her unborn child after a doctor who didn't check for pregnancy fitted her with an IUD contraceptive coil, the Sun reports.
The mother of three was seven weeks' pregnant when her doctor inserted a Mirena coil in 2012. Three months later, the woman began to miscarry during a family trip to Disneyland Paris, the Express reports. She returned to Britain and labor was induced.
She gave birth to a stillborn baby and later needed emergency surgery to remove the placenta, per the Sun. Dr. Bhaskar Bora, 41, faces misconduct charges for failing to conduct a proper examination before inserting the coil. The woman, who is in her 30s and was not identified, told a medical tribunal on Wednesday that she went to see Bora in August 2011 when she was experiencing an extended period and severe pains.
