Treveon Isaiah Taylor, Jr., is to be the first child of Jessica Ross and Treveon Isaiah Taylor, Sr.
In the early morning of July 9, Jessica Ross’s water broke and she went into labor at 37 weeks gestation. At 8:40 pm, after over 10 hours of labor, she was fully dilated and her doctors told her to start pushing. It was at this point during delivery that Treveon Taylor Jr.’s shoulders got stuck.
Jessica Ross and Treveon Taylor Sr. asked the doctor to perform a c-section. Dr. Tracey St. Julian reportedly continues to try and force a vaginal birth and Jessica Ross continues to push. At 9:26 pm the fetal monitor showed an abnormal fetal heartbeat and the heart rate continued to decrease for the next hour and 10 minutes. By 10:36, there is no sign of a fetal heartbeat on the monitoring strips and Dr. St. Julian preps to perform an emergency c-section.
At 12:11 am the baby’s body and legs are delivered by c-section, but his head is delivered vaginally. The baby is decapitated during the birth process.
