Mom Sues Hospital for Millions After Accidentally Killing Newborn Son

A Portland area woman is suing the hospital where she delivered her son in 2012 for millions after she caused his death by accidentally smothering him.

Monica Thompson’s son Jacob was just four days old when a nurse brought him to his mother’s bed to breastfeed. Thompson was recovering from a cesarean section and claims she was heavily medicated when her son was brought to her for a middle of the night feed.

Tragically Thompson suffocated her son and now she’s suing Portland Adventist Medical Center for $8.6 million in damages.
