A pregnant woman in China almost died right before she gave birth-because of the strength of her unborn baby's kick.
The incident occurred on October 2, after mum Zhang - then 35 weeks pregnant - presented at the Peking University Shenzhen Hospital in China at 10am, initially complaining of an upset stomach, The Sun reports.
Initial checks were run for what Zhang was still describing as stomach pains, and it wasn't until specialists conducted an ultrasound on the woman's womb that they realised what had happened.
Throughout the day, Zhang began to run a fever and break out in a cold sweat and with the pains steadily increasing the woman rushed to the emergency department at Peking University Shenzhen Hospital.
The woman's medical history revealed she had undergone surgery to remove fibroids in 2016 and that the baby had torn through the scar tissue.Читайте также: Ireland to make their Test debut against Pakistan in May next year
Based on Ms Zhang's accounts, doctors suspected that she had a uterine rupture on the site of the previous incision.
Ms Zhang was immediately taken under the knife and her baby was born through C-section about 10 minutes later.
The child kicked a wound inside the woman's uterus, which was left over from a prior operation. Only 26 cases are said to have been reported worldwide.
The incredibly rare condition was captured on MRI by the mother's doctor, Pierre-Emmanuel Bouet, who said he has never seen anything similar.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
