This is something you only ever imagine happens in movies.
When Yulia Belyaeva got married she learned that she had become pregnant with a baby girl. Yulia went into labor on December 17, 1998.
The nurses took Yulia’s baby away into another room whilst Yulia got some rest. It is believed that during this time the nurses accidentally swapped Yulia’s baby with the other mother’s baby.
She and her husband took Irina home to begin life as a family, but the couple soon split after lots of tension.
After failing to make good on his promise to pay alimony, Yulia took her ex-husband to court. He was refusing to pay any money until he was sure that the baby was his. He always felt she looked nothing like him.
The judge ordered full DNA tests, after which Yulia received the biggest shock of her life. Her husband was not Irina’s biological father — nor was she her biological mother!
Desperate for answers, Yulia went to the police for help.
Luckily they decided to act fast to find out what was really going on.
Yulia and Naimat sued the hospital in which the girls were born. In 2011, the court awarded both families $100,000 each in compensation. However, I don’t think any amount of money could heal the turmoil these families have had to go through.
