Unborn baby kicks hole in mother's womb, both nearly die

Unborn baby kicks hole in mother's womb, both nearly die

A Chinese mother and newborn daughter are recovering after her unborn baby nearly kicked through the wall of her womb, prompting emergency surgery.

The baby girl was born at 35 weeks through a caesarean section, and both she and her mother are in stable condition, according to the Peking University Shenzhen Hospital in southern China.

The expectant Ms Zhang was rushed to hospital in critical condition after she complained of severe stomach pain that lasted for hours.

What happened next was described in a statement by the Peking University Shenzhen Hospital.

Both the baby and the mother are said to be doing well, according to a report in the UK's Sun. Fibroids are tumours that grow in a woman's uterus. "Uterine rupture during pregnancy is a rare event and [usually] results in life-threatening maternal and fetal compromise", it says.

Dr Zhong said that Ms Zhang's amniotic sac had also broken and the amniotic fluid had flown into her abdomen.

Doctor Zhang Lei said the woman had been left with a scar on the uterus wall from the previous surgery, and the fetus ruptured it by kicking out.

An unborn baby kicked her motherso hard that she tore a hole in the woman's womb, nearly killing them both and prompting an emergency c-section. Only 26 cases are said to have been reported worldwide.

But after a scan, doctors saw the baby's leg in a unusual location.
