Virginia speaks on Radio 2 about El Salvador baby swap

A British father and his wife have spoken of their heartbreak after being given the wrong baby by a hospital in El Salvador last year.

 

Richard Cushworth and his Salvadoran wife Mercy have only now been allowed to travel home to the US with their son Moses after DNA tests proved he had been swapped with another boy.

 

The couple had been waiting for over eight months for a birth certificate. Both babies were returned to their real parents in september. 

 

Virginia speaks about the importance of mother and baby not being separated at any time after birth, most importantly for bonding but to ensure no babies can be swapped by accident.
