The daughter of Susan Sarandon, Eva Amurri Martino, has opened up about the injuries her newborn son Major sustained after a night nurse allegedly dropped him on a solid wood floor in November.

The mum-of-two spoke about the incident on her blog Happily Eva After and said her son had a “fractured skull” and a brain bleed after the incident.

Eva, who is also an actress like her famous mother, said she was “riddled with guilt” after the incident.

“A couple of days after Thanksgiving, our Night Nurse fell asleep while holding Major and dropped him, and he cracked his head on the hardwood floor.”

“Kyle and I were sleeping at the time and were awoken by the sound of his head hitting the floor, and then hysterical piercing screams. He suffered a fractured skull and bleeding on his brain, and was transported by ambulance to Yale Medical Center where I spent two harrowing days with him to receive emergency care and further testing. To say these were the most traumatic and anxious two days of my life is an understatement.”

“The guilt I bore in the days and weeks after this accident was more intense and more damaging than anything I would wish upon my worst enemy,.”

Baby Major, who is now two months old, is now doing well but the mum said she finds it hard to trust other people with her children.

“It’s nearly impossible for me to trust anyone but myself to take care of Major now.”

“Even though I finally made peace with the fact that this freak accident could not have been avoided by me, it has continued to affect me to my core and in all aspects of my daily life.”

The Undateable actress, who is also mum to Marlow Mae (2) also opened up about her battle with port-natal depression.

“To anybody else who is suffering from similar feelings or challenges, no matter the cause– I am with you in this. Let’s get better. It’s time.”
