Jennifer Kennedy and newborn son Elijah were left fighting for their lives after his birth at Crosshouse Hospital in Kilmarnock last December.
Elijah suffered brain damage after being starved of oxygen for 30 minutes during an emergency caesarean which was delayed for 10 hours due to confusion among the ward’s medical and nursing staff, according to an NHS report in August.
