A mother who was rushed to hospital after a serious car crash with her newborn baby refused strong painkillers for more than four hours so she could breastfeed her daughter. Danni Bett was travelling with two-month-old Indi on the outskirts of Christchurch, New Zealand, when she lost control of her vehicle and smashed into a metal fence.
The impact of the terrifying crash left Ms Bett in a neck-brace, but with her motherly instincts still fully intact, telling Stuff.co.nz she just wanted to comfort her baby. ‘All I could say was, “Get my baby out, she’s in the car, get my baby”. I was in so much shock,’ Ms Bett said. Amazingly, Indi slept throughout the crash and only woke when onlookers came to help the pair, before paramedics arrived to take both mother and daughter to Christchurch Hospital. Regardless, she refused strong pain killers for four hours as she underwent X-Rays, ultrasounds and other tests, just so she could breastfeed her daughter.
