It took three Australian hospitals over three days tofind out that little Breanna Arkinstall was born without a stomach.
Minutes after Breanna was born at Milton Hospital on the New South Wales south coast, she started turning blue.
"They couldn't work out what was wrong with her," her mum Jasmine, 28, said.
"By the following afternoon they decided they needed to send her to another hospital."
"They transferred us via ambulance to Nowra Hospital and when we arrived the special care nurses were waiting for us."
Tired and stressed having had no sleep for more than 24 hours, Arkinstall was told Breanna had to go on to The Children's Hospital at Westmead.
"The doctors had done a chest X-ray and they found her stomach hadn't developed which meant she couldn't feed," she said.
