You know the (terrible) joke about kids getting dropped on their heads as babies? Well, Mama June can one-up that. And it’s not funny at all.
The “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” star recently paid a visit to the “Botched” doctors to talk about correcting the damage left behind by her C-sections. During her consultation, she also revealed what might be every parent’s worst nightmare: When Mama June gave birth to her daughter Alana (”Honey Boo Boo”), a doctor performing her C-section made an incision that cut the baby’s head.
Clearly shocked by the revelation, Dr. Nassif asked, “You’re saying when he did the C-section, he got so deep it actually cut into Honey Boo Boo’s forehead?”
“Yeah,” Mama June responded.
The situation is surely terrifying, but fetal lacerations do happen. A 2004 study by the Pennsylvania Patient Safety Authority found that, out of nearly 900 women who had C-sections, between 1.5 percent and 1.9 percent of infants experienced lacerations.
And yet, a dumbfounded Dr. Nassif couldn’t help but ask, “How does that happen? What type of doctor did this?!”
