Vadodara: The seven-day-old dispute between two mothers-Ramila Chunara and Ramila Damor, whose newborn babies were swapped due to a mistake of nurse, was today resolved amicably in the Gujarat government-run SSG Hospital here.

Ramila Chunara of the city, who refused to accept her baby girl for the past seven days, today accepted the baby and expressed her happiness on it. She said, "This dispute was due to genuine mistake of a nurse of the hospital and now it has ended on happy note."

Chunara offered sweets to Ramila Damor, a tribal woman of Limkheda town of neighbouring Dahod District. Damor said, "I was not aware of giving birth to a baby boy as his birth took place after operation and I was not conscious. It was the doctor, who conducted operation to me, informed me that I give birth to a baby boy."

"Even if I was given birth to a baby girl, I was ready to accept her on the doctor's advice," said Damor. As both the newly born boy and girl were underweight, they were kept in incubators in the ward of the hospital for four days. Damor breastfeeded baby girl and Chunara breast feeded the baby boy.

After realising the lapse on the part of a staff nurse of the hospital, doctor persuaded Chunara to breastfeed her newly born baby girl and she started breastfeeding her new born baby girl for the past three days which has given a hope for amicable resolving of the issue, doctor at the hospital said.

Earlier, resident medical officer of the hospital B C Patel said, "Chunara who had refused to take possession of the baby girl saying that she gave birth to a boy in the gynaecology ward of the hospital on May 30 last and had been breastfeeding him for the last four days."

The doctors said that Chunara gave birth to a baby girl on the same day (30th May), Ramila Damor from Limkheda town of Dohad district admitted in the same hospital and gave birth to a baby boy.
